An estimated 500 Millington area residents attended the event over Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3, 2016. For the first time, the MAC joined the Millington Kiwanis and the Millington Quilt Guild to share event space in the Millington Harvell Civic Center.
For the MAC, the focus was on Millington area students.  Students from nine Millington area schools were invited and participated in the Student Art Show by representing their school.  Overall, 244 visual art and 72 literary entries were submitted to the show.
Art and literary pieces were judged prior to the event and the exhibiting artists were recognized at the show and again in their local schools.  The MAC held a Student Artist Reception on Saturday afternoon.  Dianne Baker, Executive Director of the Millington Chamber of Commerce joined the MAC in kicking off the event.
The Chamber issued a grant to MAC to support initiatives focused on increasing arts awareness in the Millington area.  The MAC, in turn, recognized teachers and presented checks to support the arts in Millington area schools.
Saturday’s musical entertainment ranged from Latin hymns, blockbuster movie scores, to country music.  The MCHS Band kicked off the event and was followed by E.E. Jeter’s “Sound of Shelby Forest” band and Middle School Choir.  The Tipton Rosemark Ensemble finished off the morning’s entertainment. Afternoon performances included E.A. Harrold Elementary Choir, followed by Woodstock Middle Band, and wrapping up the day was Millington Elementary Choir.
A main attraction for the event was MCHS Art Club’s Silent Auction.  MCHS’ Senior Art Club students created over 40 pieces of the original art and visitors were encouraged to bid on artwork throughout the weekend.  Silent Auction sales raised $1000 for MCHS National Art Club scholarships.
