"MAC" THE DRAGON
Dragon the Arts into Monson
Meet the new Monson Arts Mascot, created by Monson artist Peter Mayberry, ready to take his permanent place in front of the House of Art
The Monson Arts Council announced that it has purchased Peter Mayberry’s dragon sculpture, which has graced the lawn in front of the House of Art in Monson since it won acclaim in the spring art show in 2018. The MAC has named the dragon “Mac”, and is launching an ambitious fund-raising campaign to help cover the considerable cost of the dragon and its permanent installation.
Mac will be installed in his current location in front of the House of Art. He’ll be placed on a triangular shaped piece of Monson granite, donated by the Monson Highway Department.
The arts council is making an appeal to all Monson residents and businesses to contribute to this new Monson mascot. Contributors will receive "Thank you" bonuses:
donors of $25 or more will receive a "Mac the Dragon" T-shirt.
donors of $100 or more will get a 4" x 8" engraved granite block
donors of $500 or more will get a 12" x 12" engraved granite slab
donors of $1000 or more will get a 12" x 18" engraved granite slab
Each donor of $100 or more will get a template on which to enter their chosen text. Blocks have a smaller font, slabs a larger font.
