Ode to Relationships

Artwork by Ayana Mack

July 1 - August 16, 2024

Opening Reception: July 18th, 6-8pm

"Ode to Relationships" is a body of work created by Ayana Mack. It is a visual journey of love, beauty, and healing through portraits of Black people. It's a transformative experience that highlights the depth of relationships - with ourselves, our families, partners, and friends. Sometimes, we find ourselves in beautiful and challenging situations where we are learning and unlearning what we have been taught while hopefully trying to be gentle with ourselves. This exhibition will inspire you to reflect on your own relationships and the beauty of the human experience.
One of the questions to ask while viewing this work is: "What can happen when empathy, softness, vulnerability and love are applied to all relationships?"

Calling All Artists!

The Multicultural Arts Center is looking to redesign the banner that hangs outside our historic building in East Cambridge. This banner is a key part of our identity, as it is the first thing visitors see when entering from the street, and serves as both a marker and the first point of welcome.​
