Light refreshments will be served, board members and DCAC stake holders will be on hand to discuss the organization.
“It’s not philanthropy, it’s faith that keeps DC Arts Center alive,” says Director B. Stanley. “Our energetic supporters and arts community are exactly why we have survived and continue to thrive despite the drastic lack of financial support for the arts.”
In the heart of one of Washington’s most culturally diverse neighborhoods, cutting-edge artists and performers have found support and encouragement at the District of Columbia Arts Center for 20 years. Today DCAC is the vibrant hub of alternative arts activity in Adams Morgan. Poets, painters, actors, storytellers, sculptors, and performance artists from around the corner and around the world gather here to participate in the exchange of ideas and the creation of new visions.
On Saturday, October 3 between 12:00 noon and 4 pm, the public is invited to see why DC Arts Center is indispensable to the local arts scene and is one of this neighborhood’s exciting cultural highlights. The afternoon will feature board members, visual artists, actors, a poetry reading, and an open discussion with the Executive Director about DCAC’s past, present and future as well his experience in the DC arts scene over the past 25 years.
In addition to coming by DC Arts Center's open house, visitors can take the opportunity to enjoy the neighborhood of Adams Morgan and all it has to offer. Check out the annual Crafty Bastards Craft Fair, taking place on October 3rd, from 10am to 5pm right down the street from DCAC at the Marie Reed Community Center.
