MAIACA’s mission has been to bring visibility to all forms of Indian Art and Culture to the local community. From Indian Art exhibitions at local museums, to cultural performance of Indian and western dances, to eclectic musical performances and on to conversations about modern Indian art and its influence on the world stage, MAIACA – in its short existence – has made an impact on the community.

The Meaning of "Maiaca"
Maiaca is a Hindi word that means a daughter's mother's house. We chose this word to represent our organization because it gives the connotation of a daughter or child returning home, to be taken care of. That's how we want Indian-Americans to feel when joining us.
