The Cultural Arts Center
The Cultural Arts Center (CAC), located at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and East-West Highway, established the College as a center for the performing arts in the down-county area and fills a longstanding void in the community. It anchors the southernmost corner of the Silver Spring Arts and Entertainment District and provides an excellent venue for county and metro area arts patrons to attend unique professional public performances as well as events sponsored by community organizations.
The CAC opened in 2009 and consists of a 500 seat main multi-use concert hall & theatre space (Theatre I), a 116 studio or laboratory theatre (Theatre II), a dance studio (The George and Ruth Tretter Dance Studio), the Cultural Arts Center Gallery, a film editing lab, and multiple classrooms for academic classes and workshops. A large digital marquee faces north at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and East-West Highway and informs the community about upcoming CAC events.
