Celebrating 35 years in the region, the Manitou Art Center is a safe space for creativity and the do-it-yourself community. Supporting all forms of creative expression, we invite all ages to the table and encourage invention by offering low-risk opportunities through our studios and makerspaces. The MAC enhances the uniqueness of Manitou Springs and encourages others to invest in our creative spaces.
With over 1,400 members, 85 monthly programs, 18 unique art openings annually, 24 businesses, and the temporary home of the Manitou Springs Public Library, the MAC is dedicated to offering equitable space and resources to artists, tinkerers, collaborators, and you, creating an environment where all can flourish in our community.
Equipment and consumables: the MAC is always growing and developing its studio equipment. Our metal shop and woodworking spaces are always in need of quality items for our members.
Did you know that the Manitou Art Center is the largest makerspace in the State of Colorado?
“This place is unbelievable. I mean it. The equipment! The people! The Pikes Peak region is fortunate to have this resource and their partnership with Pikes Peak Library District has increased access for all. Thank you for being here for us.” — Anonymous Super MAC User
