The Arts in Columbia

Recommended Posts

Not sure where to put this, but you may have heard that Columbia is getting a new public charter school for the arts. According to their website, the Midlands Arts Conservatory (MAC) will open in August, 2017. MAC will have a focus on the visual arts, theater, dance and music. Go to  and .

They will be holding two informational meetings for parents and the community: on Saturday January 7 at 4:00 in the North Main branch of the Richland Public Library, and on Sunday, January 8 at 3:00 in the second floor theatre at the main branch of the Richland Public Library.

That's very cool! Theatre is especially big in Cola, so the school is a great idea. On a somewhat related note, I read a story the other day about the future of the Richland County Judicial Center on Main St. If a new courthouse is built downtown, someone has suggested the old one be retrofitted to a performing arts center of some kind. We'll see.
