The MAC, which also offers rotating art exhibitions and permanent displays on local history, now charges $3 for nonmembers during its regular hours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Admission was previously free to the public.
“The MAC board of trustees adopted the admission policy,” said spokeswoman Renee Mizar, “to create an additional income stream.”
MAC members still enjoy free admission, as do children ages 12 and younger and middle school and high school students with identification.
During the Sequim Art Walk, held every first Friday of the month from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., admission reverts to free for everyone, Mizar noted.
The Olympic Peninsula Doll Club curated “Valentine Sweethearts,” the current show of two dozen figures from history.
Among all the Kewpies, Barbies, American Girl and Nana's Family dolls is an early 1970s Shirley Temple doll by Ideal.

This figure portrays the very young actress who grew up to be diplomat Shirley Temple Black, U.S. ambassador to Ghana from 1974 to 1976, and to Czechoslovakia from 1989 to 1992. Temple Black died Monday at age 85.
The “Valentine Sweethearts” exhibition will stay at the MAC through March 22, after which the Olympic Peninsula Doll Club will update it with Easter- and spring-themed dolls.
