About Us

The Multicultural Art Center is a non-profit corporation founded in 1978 as an arts center focused on helping diverse populations better understand one another. In 1985 we moved into our new home at 41 Second Street.


Our mission is to present multicultural visual and performing arts programs to educate the community about diversity, and make our facility available to artists or groups that might not otherwise have access to a professionally equipped facility or the cultural mainstream. 



The Multicultural Arts Center values diversity in all of its forms and supports the inclusion of all people – and their self-expression, race, ethnicity, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion – in all aspects of society. We stand against any policies that purposely discriminate against any group of people, such as those policies recently passed.

The Multicultural Arts Center is home to an extraordinary Theater, complete with ornate Victorian details and theater lighting and sound equipment. We also feature two art galleries, backstage green room and other dressing areas, a kitchen, and an outside courtyard that can be rented for wedding ceremonies.
