Join us for the opening reception on January 18th! This exhibit is part of MCCA’s series of neighborhood exhibitions which celebrate the work of artists across Boston’s varied cityscapes, one neighborhood at a time. According to the City of Boston, Roxbury is “the heart of Black culture in Boston.” Mattapan has a thriving immigrant community and “is home to a large African American and Caribbean community.” (https://www.boston.gov/neighborhoods) Many of the works featured in Gestures of Empowerment embody the character of the Roxbury and Mattapan neighborhoods. The exhibition includes paintings, photographs, fiber constructions, and mixed media works with content that ranges from explorations of light, texture, and color to investigations of social justice issues, historical figures, and the cultures shaping our world today. The thoughtful expressions evident in these works are inspiring and provoke a sense of empowerment.

Featuring work by Percy Davis, Kaleena Deshawn, L’Merchie Frazier, Lahya Hyppolite, Reginald L. Jackson, Marjorie Saintil-Belizaire, Kate True, Dianne Zimbabwe

To view the exhibition check in with security at the Summer Street entrance who can direct you to the 2nd floor exhibition space on the North West side of the building.
