Mahogany Black Arts and Cultural Center, Inc. – BLACK ART IN AMERICA™

Mahogany Black Arts and Cultural Center, Inc.

One of the BAIA Foundation’s 2022 initiatives is to establish marketing assistance for African American museums and cultural centers.

The Mahogany Black Arts and Cultural Center, Inc. is a non-profit organization in Racine, Wisconsin that preserves and raises awareness of black history, art, and culture in Racine County. The organization was founded last year in 2021 and has since made it its mission to expand its temporary gallery space into a larger facility that will exist as more than just a museum. The hope of the MBACC is to provide visitors with a unique and creative perspective to better understand the Black experience.

The MBACC’s new imagined installation will highlight what Black Americans have felt through their experiences and have existed in life since those experiences. The cultural center hopes to bring more awareness and inspire greater understanding and respect for native black people in Racine County.

Mahogany Gallery, where MBACC currently exists, champions the idea that art is freedom, and that this freedom long sought after by Black Americans is protected and encouraged within the gallery. The Mahogany Gallery is a place where visitors can learn, connect, be entertained and inspired. In the gallery, visitors can learn about the contributions of Black Americans throughout history through educational videos, gallery exhibits, the community garden, and various programs and events that honor those in the African diaspora.

Currently at the MBACC and the Mahogany Gallery, visitors can view the exhibition Juneteenth 2022: A RETROSPECTIVE FEATURE’S DETROIT DIGITAL COLLAGE ARTIST, JAMES CHARLES MORRIS. Soon, Romare’s Garden Uptown Oasis will be accessible to the public in the MBACC’s Romare Garden, which is the gallery’s newest ongoing project.

Just recently, they completed their first major haul removing trash, weeds, bushes and vines to clear the way for the mural. This garden will feature murals that honor Romare Bearden capturing his artistic style among the garden oasis where live music and outdoor events will take place.

MBACC will be hosting a planting and painting party on August 6, 2022 to continue building their project and making the garden oasis a reality.
