Midwest Art Catalyst
The outpouring of community at the 2010 Post Holiday Extravaganza spawned the creation of the Midwest Art Catalyst (MWAC). With the help of my nearest and dearest. a non-profit organization was formed, with the goal to create, promote, and support artistic / musical events and ideas. In addition to donating to local art and music programs, we also sponsor fundraisers for individual causes. Our goal is to bring the community’s creatives closer together, thus making us all a bit stronger and more inspired. Get on board! MWAC is for everyone who needs a little creative stimulation to complete their lives.
Thanks for life…

The goal of the Midwest Art Catalyst is to support the growth of the arts community in our area. We hold fundraisers to fund art and music programs in our local public schools and to provide art to the greater community. We’re always looking for new ideas!
"Promoting creative growth and enriching the community
through art and music."
$2000: THE 410 PROJECT
The 410 Project has been a staple in the Mankato arts community for many years. Our donation helped the 410 Project continue to present exciting exhibitions, community events, and art sessions to kids and adults alike.
Our main goal is to bring Mankato’s creative community closer together thus making us all stronger and more inspired. In addition to donating to local art and music programs, we also sponsor fundraisers for individual causes.
With your help, it is our non-stop goal to create, promote, and support artistic and musical events and artists in our region.
