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 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 is open to everyone. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, gender, gender identification, political identification or economic status or class.
Our staff and programming have always reflected the diversity of the community. Specific to gender and gender identification this has included: Heterosexual, Bi-sexual, Gay, Lesbian, Queer, Binary, Gender-Queer, Non-Binary, and Transgender.
We treat everyone with the same respect that we wish to be treated with.
The Multicultural Arts Center is home to an extraordinary Theater, complete with ornate Victorian details and theater lighting and sound equipment. We also feature an Art Gallery, backstage green room and other dressing areas, a kitchen, and an outside courtyard that can be rented for wedding ceremonies.
