The Cultural Arts Center (CAC), completed in 2008, 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.
On average the gallery has seven exhibits per year, two of which are dedicated to our students for, "end of semester" shows and one exhibit is set aside for our, "Lee's Summit Fine Arts Challenge" which is our local high school annual exhibit. Every other year we have an art faculty exhibit showcasing the latest accomplishments and projects of our faculty. The gallery offers 1,600 square-feet of dedicated space for 2D, 3D and 4D works of art. For gallery inquiries please contact Daniel Reneau.

Originally performed by August Wilson himself, How I Learned What I Learned is a heartfelt theatrical memoir charting one man's journey of self-discovery through adversity, and what it means to be a Black artist in America. (Playbill)
It is our desire and ongoing goal to develop a conceptually challenging and educational venue for our students, faculty and communities both near and far.
The gallery showcases the work of our own students and faculty, but also on a regular basis presents exhibits from emerging artists throughout our region and the nation. In addition, the gallery displays the strongest work of our local high school students each January for our annual high school juried exhibit.
