The Men's Arts Council
The Men's Arts Council of Phoenix Art Museum is a nonprofit organization that was founded in January 1967 to support the programs and activities of the Museum. With the talents and efforts of its over 175 members, MAC organizes two distinctively different annual events: an annual Western Art Sale and Exhibition and the Bell Lexus Copperstate 1000 Vintage Car Rally.
The success of these fundraising events enables MAC to make annual contributions to the Museum's operating budget, to financially sponsor exhibitions, and to fund three separate endowments for art acquisition and education: Western American Art Endowment Fund, Men's Arts Council Sculpture Endowment, and the James K. Ballinger Director's Scholarship Endowment. As of August 2010, MAC's cumulative financial contribution to Phoenix Art Museum over the last 44 years is over $9 million.
