College of DuPage completes its 14-month $35 million renovation of the McAninch Arts Center. The MAC began major renovations in fall 2012 to update its three performance spaces, construct a new art gallery and outdoor patio stage, and make improvements to the infrastructure and patron service areas. Wight & Company, who served as the original architects of the McAninch Arts Center in 1986, returned to design the renovations. Construction for the MAC renovations is by Mortenson Construction. The MAC renovation was funded by the $168 million referendum that voters of District 502 passed in November 2010. Visitors entering the new MAC will pass under a graceful new portico as they walk across temperature-controlled entrance before entering the MAC's bright, expansive lobby. They will be greeted by tall white cylindrical pendant lighting and an energizing color palette. They will also see a new box office which has been relocated to the lower lobby level.
