About District of Columbia Arts Center (DCAC)
The DC Arts Center (DCAC) is the only institution in the greater Washington, D.C., area solely dedicated to fostering underrepresented artists in every discipline. We believe that by encouraging artists of all types and all levels to pursue their passion, community transformation is possible. Located in the vibrant Adams Morgan neighborhood in Washington, D.C., DCAC operates a small arts facility that includes two art galleries, a 41-seat black box theater, and office space. Founded in 1989 as an accessible alternative arts center in response to eroding support for local artists, DCAC has since become a hub of creativity in the visual and performing arts, receiving local, national, and international attention. Artists of all types, including poets, painters, actors, storytellers, sculptors, and performance artists, have been drawn to DCAC from around the corner and around the globe.For more information on DCAC, visit dcartscenter.org.
