  • Multnomah Arts Center


Project Update - December 2018

Construction for seismic improvements at Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) will occur from mid-December 2018 - April 2019. The auditorium at MAC will be closed for construction from mid-December 2018 through February 2019. Work will continue in the main hallway until April 2019. At times, parts of the main hallway may be blocked. The rest of MAC will stay open for regularly scheduled classes, programs, and activities. 

A future phase of Bond improvements to provide ADA access to the cottages at MAC is planned for mid-2019. 


Project Overview

Thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) will receive seismic and ADA improvements. In order to make the best use of these limited funds, feasibility studies were completed in Phase 1 of the Bond to help define the scope of work for the two projects. In Phase 2, design and construction on these improvements will be completed.

Seismic improvements will be focused on creating conditions for safe egress in the event of seismic activity. Work will include installing bracing in the roof, replacing skylights, and rebuilding one wall of the auditorium.

ADA improvements will improve access to the cottages at MAC, which are used by PP&R for community arts classes and other programs.
