The McCormick Arts Council at the Keturah (MACK):

The McCormick Arts Council at the Keturah (MACK) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that operates from the Historic Keturah Hotel and serves the extended community of McCormick, South Carolina.  This organization was chartered in 1984 and opened its doors to provide quality programming to the public in 1985.

The MACK’s mission is to provide art, culture, and education to the region.

Our purpose at the MACK is to stimulate and encourage participation in cultural activities including exhibits, performances, and instruction. It is important that we actively participate in the economic development of our community and provide a historic and cultural establishment for tourism purposes. We encourage any opportunity to partner with our local, state and federal government agencies, businesses, teachers, families and other community organizations.
