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. 

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! Ticket proceeds help cover expenses for a students trip! Great music and a great cause! We hope to see you there.

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.
