Baldwin: A Community Story – On Display November 6, 2023-April 30, 2024

“Baldwin: A Community Story” is part art exhibition and community space, dedicated to our organization’s 53 years of history and the namesakes who inspire our work — Maria L. Baldwin and Maud Morgan. You will be able to visit the show in the Chandler Gallery from November 6th 2023 – April 30th 2024.

In May of 2023 our Board of Directors voted to rename our organization the Maria L. Baldwin Community Center (MLBCC). As we embark on the process to change our name legally, we are taking the opportunity to pause, reflect and celebrate.

Featuring art pieces and historical archives that tell our long and richly layered story, highlights of the exhibition include handmade busts inspired by the likeness of Maud Morgan and Maria Baldwin, created by all of our agency’s afterschool students and team members; large scale Polaroid prints taken by Cambridge’s own Elsa Dorfman; as well as antique archives from our own collection; and pieces from our community partners, such as the Baldwin School. Special thanks to the Cambridge Historical Commission, which assisted us in identifying and dating many of our pieces.
