The artwork, which is called 'The Permanent Present', consists of 400 metal lines which create a spectrum of colour, visible from various viewpoints in the building.
It will be a permanent installation at the MAC in Cathedral Quarter.
The Thomas Devlin Fund was set up in memory of the schoolboy who was murdered in north Belfast in 2005.
His parents Penny Holloway and Jim Devlin said the MAC embodies change and new hope for the future, which are ideals that they share.
"Young people use music and the arts to express themselves and it is our belief that creative expression can effect change in people's lives," they said.
"The MAC embodies change and new hope for the future, which are ideals that we share.
"The MAC's commitment to working with young people across the arts made it the obvious location for us to collaborate to commission this stunning and thought provoking work."
Artist Mark Garry explained his vision behind the piece.
"For this commission I wanted to create a work that is positive and hopeful," he said.
"I have been engaged in making this type of work for some time now. The motivation stems from a desire to create art works which are universal and evoke empathy.
"I hope that it engages with and utilises this particular space in the MAC in a manner that is both generous and spectacular."
The Thomas Devlin Fund was established to promote public awareness about the effects and impact of the type of violent attack which brought about Thomas's tragic death.
Managed by the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland, it dispenses bursaries and scholarships to young people between the ages of 15 and 19, with the aim of helping them develop their talents and careers in the field of the creative arts.
