We URGENTLY need YOUR SUPPORT.

MAC ART HISTORY HAS BEEN A PART OF THE HAMILTON ARTISTIC RENAISSANCE. IT IS NEEDED BY OUR COMMUNITY, ITS ARTISTS, AND ITS MUSEUMS. IT HAS BEEN PART OF THE CITY AND UNIVERSITY FOR OVER EIGHTY YEARS. DON’T LET IT GO THE WAY OF ITALIAN, SPANISH, GERMAN, COMPARATIVE LITERATURE, CULTURAL STUDIES, AND WOMEN’S STUDIES.
