Muslim center opens in Back Bay
Reaching out through culture
Tech firm founders and fast-food restaurant owners, students and medical researchers inspected an Iranian photographer’s images mounted on a wall. A jazz quartet performed as stylish men and women mingled easily. Three women wore headscarves; more wore cocktail dresses. They were among about 200 people who attended the opening reception of a new Muslim cultural center in a space that formerly housed an art gallery on Newbury Street Friday night.
