The Maroon Arts Group creative collective, in collaboration with the City of Columbus and other sponsors, opened its new Movement Pursuing Arts, Commerce & Community (MPACC) arts space in the King-Lincoln District on Sunday, May 20.

A unique development consisting of two repurposed shipping containers—with a third operated by vegetarian soul food restaurant Willowbeez SoulVeg—Maroon Arts Group opened the space with a day-long festival featuring music, vendors, performances, and activities for children.

On the main stage were performances by Paul Wood of the Columbus All-City Drumline and Transit Arts Group, among others. And in the MPACC arts space gallery, artists from Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center were featured in an exhibition titled “Transc3nd.”

The MPACC arts and event space is open to reservations from the public. For more information about the space and Maroon Arts Group in general, visit maroonartsgroup.com.
