Completed in 2008, the Cultural Arts Center (CAC) provides the City of Lee's Summit and the Kansas City metropolitan area with quality arts programming. The CAC has fostered student and community creativity and innovation since its creation. It was the vision of MCC to provide a home for the arts in the city of Lee's Summit. With the help of a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant the CAC broke ground in 2006. The CAC is not only a hub for the arts; it is also a FEMA certified disaster relief shelter. One of the only sites of its kind in the metropolitan area.
