To develop and cultivate an expanding interest in art within Jackson County residents and visitors to our community by supporting lifelong learning, sustaining our cultural heritage, and appreciating the arts in our everyday lives.

History and Vision:

Maquoketa Art Experience (MAE) is a non-profit organization established in 2008 and located in downtown Maquoketa, Iowa. MAE is dedicated to arts education, fostering appreciation of the arts, and to building community by engaging the residents of Maquoketa and surrounding areas in diverse creative activities.

MAE's art facility, located in a large space that was formerly four separate storefronts, is designed to host various types of workshops, classes, demonstrations, presentations, performances, and events. Fine art, music, writing, crafts, and unique art experiences are enjoyed at MAE. The MAE space exposes the community to exceptional local, regional, and visiting artists through exhibitions and special workshops.
