DC Arts Center (DCAC)

Since 1989, the go-to place to satisfy the culturally curious appetite for new arrivals and long term residents alike has been the DC Arts Center. Our intimate, fifty-seat “black box” theater and two art galleries bring together discerning, inquisitive audiences with bold, fresh ideas through thought-provoking quality art exhibitions and performances. In any given year, we will host over 200 performances of over 30 different groups; present 13 art exhibitions of over 50 artists with opening receptions and artists’ talks; run artists’ collective and curatorial mentorship programs; host over 125 rehearsals and workshops; design and publish three full color gallery catalogs; and provide fiscal sponsorship and guidance to artists and emerging arts organizations.

Located in Washington DC's Adams Morgan neighborhood, it was founded to support new, emerging and underserved artists by providing affordable and accessible space and programs while developing relationships with audiences. We seek out artists from minority communities, artists at the beginning of their careers, artists producing noncommercial or experimental work, and self-taught artists. We offer them the first rung on the difficult ladder of a professional arts career. No other arts organization parallels the effort with which we specifically reach out to and draw in such a broadly diverse range of artists and audiences throughout the Greater Washington Metropolitan area.
