McAninch Arts Center at College of DuPage
Hailed as "the cultural center for greater DuPage County" by the Daily Herald, the McAninch Arts Center at College of DuPage provides a training ground for fledgling artists and an entertainment hub for the community. The center—affectionately referred to as "The MAC"—houses three theaters and an art gallery, each outfitted to host touring productions or lavish oil painting revues. Throughout the year, visitors can stop by to take in a play, sway to the beat during a concert, or peruse works by national and international artists.
