The Manayunk Roxborough Art Center (MRAC) is a non-profit educational institution which offers a full range of creative educational services to residents of the Manayunk-Roxborough community as well as the greater Philadelphia area. Presently there are approximately 100 active members and roughly 30 local artists who contribute to the center in various capacities as volunteers
Our mission is to help develop an appreciation and education of the fine arts, literary expression and related cultural endeavors to all ages. We are devoted to fostering the arts in both the local and regional communities.
Our goal is to provide a meeting place for the artistic community and to connect those engaged in creative efforts with one another and the neighborhood at large. MRAC hosts 11 art exhibitions and 10 poetry programs annually. In addition, the center publishes the Schuylkill Valley Journal and offers an ongoing series of art classes for children and adults.
