Exhibiting Artists will be announced soon. Stay tuned for more info and visit to see what we have going on in the meantime!


The Multicultural Arts Center is proud to present Luminarium in Concert - an evening of contemporary dance work, running, December 6 and 7, 2019 at 8:00pm. Hailed by the Boston Globe as “unpredictable, provocative, and gratifyingly visceral,” Luminarium Dance Company triumphantly ends its 2019 Season with its feature production LUMINARIUM IN CONCERT—a melding of contemporary, Odissi, and unique lighting that catapults live performance to a whole new level. Venture into Luminarium’s world of movement and light where fanciful animals are brought to life through shadow-play; witness the exhilaration of combat sport beyond the ring; sink into the luscious imagery of a new screendance film; and delight in an amusing and provocative examination of "self," all in a night’s work. 

The Multicultural Arts Center is proud to present A Midsummer Night's Dream - A Solo Performance on Friday, December 13 through Sunday December 15, 2019. Internationally acclaimed actor Benjamin Evett brings Shakespeare’s beloved comedy to life with mind-blowing originality. Playing fourteen characters, using only a few hand props, he vaults from fairy to lover, from male to female, dazzling with his mastery of the verse and spotless comedic timing. Hilarious, beautiful, enchanting and awe-inspiring, this Dream will leave you gasping, laughing, and cheering for more.


A perfect holiday event for the whole family. Escape the Midwinter Blues and visit this Magical Midsummer! Live music composed and performed by Jay Mobley.

On Monday, December 16 at 7:30 pm, help support the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School's World Jazz Ensemble participation at the 2020 Panama Jazz Festival (January 13 -20) by attending their upcoming performance at the Multicultural Arts Center!

Because you have attended programs or events at the Multicultural Arts Center, we know you understand the power of the arts in creating connections, encouraging conversations and facilitating understanding.


We truly believe it is more important than ever for our community to come together in support of diversity. That is why our mission is so important and why we hope that you will make a donation on GIVING TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2019.


Your donation is an investment in the idea that art provides a pathway to understanding our most essential experiences.

We rely on individual contributions to help keep our doors open, creating a space for artists to share their artistic vision, to strengthen our audience and community and to gather and share our common vision through events that we experience together.


We cannot produce great multicultural arts programming without your help. So please support the Multicultural Arts Center by making a donation! Everyone who donates will be invited to attend a special event in January 2020 called GET JOYFUL!

Join the Multicultural Arts Center on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 6:00pm for a gallery reception of Soulful by Sirarpi Heghinian Walzer. This event is free and open to the public.


The paintings in Sirarpi Heghinian Walzer’s exhibition Soulful seem to evolve, decay and morph. Her work reflects on the ephemeral, dualities, and flux of existence. The mixed media paintings bear evidence of scrawling, scraping and painting atop rich in layers of handmade and recycled papers, fabric, wood and other found materials. 


Soulful will be on view from October 28 - January 3, 2019.
