Join us for our Closing Party:

With the support of the Cambridge Arts Ripple Festival and Cambridge Plays, the Multicultural Arts Center is proud to present Summer Series 2022, a free, inclusive and interactive performance series in Centanni Park. Come to listen, dance, create and have fun!

Join us August 27th for the Summer Series Closing Party, The Sunflower Series, that will be hosted in collaboration with Creatives of Color Boston.


Created in 2018, The Sunflower Series is an annual intimate concert series that highlights MA based BIPOC performers. The goal for this series is to foster relationships between audience members and their local artists while providing a safe space for artists to focus less on the entertainment aspect of performing and more on sharing their stories. 


This year’s event is free and outdoors at Centanni Park, outside the Multicultural Arts Center at 41 Second St. Cambridge, MA. We’ll begin the day with artist vendors from 12:00pm-3:00pm and then feature live music from 5:00pm-8:00pm by Genie Santiago, Paul Willis, Maddie Lam, Neo Gcabo, and a performative meditation by Micah Rose.


Thanks as well to our sponsors Biomed Realty, East Cambridge Saving Bank, BG Events, Forklift, Tastyplates, and Capers.

Images from This Year's Summer Series:

In the Gallery

In the People of Chelsea Project, photographer Darlene DeVita offers an up-close look at the diverse, and resilient, community of Chelsea, MA. A resident of the city since 2004, from day one DeVita was inspired by Chelsea's rich history, culture, 
and community. In the 30 plus images found in this show, DeVita highlights through portraits and words the diversity, passion, and love for humanity found in this unique city in addition to the impact of COVID-19 on the tight knit community.
