The Morgan Arts Centre was started in 1991 by Toledo school teachers Mike and Di Morgan to provide a home for art and artists in southwest Lewis County.

    Today, the MAC is used throughout the year for art classes and holiday art sales, summer art camps including Camp Picasso and the Children's Theater Workshop, and as a meeting place for non-profit groups including ARTrails of Southwest Washington, Toledo Lions Club, the Toledo Cheese Days committee, Friends of the Toledo Timberland Library and Vision:Toledo.

    The 2,400-square foot center also hosts live music at events like the Vernal Equinox Art Fair and the Big Cheese Toast in the summer. For more art, come visit the Gallery 505 Artist Cooperative, located in downtown Toledo.
