From the 2012 Philadelphia Home Show: In September 2005, AL Jackson met with Melony Stagg, a Specialty Retail Manager, with Ivanhoe Cambridge – to pitch her an exciting new art concept. He laid out his idea for a unique Contemporary Art Store that Stagg found appealing, but all of the Mall’s in-line space was booked for the holiday season. Stagg suggested a common area space, but AL Jackson had reservations about being able to display his art products on a cart or kiosk. Instead he designed and built an eye-catching modular display unit he calls “The Pavilion”.
The first MacJac Art Exhibition, called “The Gift of Art” opened in mid-November in the Upper Canada Mall. The concept was an over-whelming success with both consumers and the Ivanhoe Cambridge Group itself. Today the MacJac Exhibition travels from Mall to Mall across Canada and the USA, offering shoppers a fine quality Gallery without conventional walls. Exhibitions typically last from one to ten weeks. When customers see a MacJac Exhibit they stop dead in their tracks, ponder the vivid colours of the artwork and begin circling the Pavilion.
The Art is extremely sensual and provokes an overwhelming emotional response. Many customers enjoy the “Voyage of Discovery” experience. All are encouraged to take their time in order to enjoy the vibrancy, the majesty and the thrill of the instant romance associated with each piece. Many literally fall in love at first sight. MacJac USA now gives many the opportunity to collect beautiful works of Art long after the Exhibition has moved onto the next venue.
