sitar arts center
The Sitar Center is a community arts center located in the multicultural Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC. It focuses primarily on programs and activities for at-risk youth and their families, but also reaches out to all community members through shared experiences in the arts.
Design of the facility centers around colorful practice rooms and a kids' cafe. Studios for the visual arts ring the perimeter, taking advantage of daylight. A theater is finished with red velvet seats and polished metal rails. By providing a safe, structured and nurturing environment for the exploration of music, dance, drama, writing and visual arts, the Sitar Center serves as a catalyst not only for the imagination, but for developing the cognitive and life skills of all participating community members.
