MAC to be Open on Sundays

The Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture (MAC) will open its doors on Sundays beginning Super Bowl Sunday, February 3. "Sunday is a family day and often the only day of the week for families to share an experience in our galleries and Campbell House," says Executive Director Forrest Rodgers.
