The DCAC, located just above the hookah shop on 2438 18th St, is the hidden gem of Adams Morgan. The DCAC has housed wild works of art from webbed contraptions that visitors could skateboard beneath to a gala that transformed the entire edifice into a pseudo-functioning spaceship. Galas change monthly with the express intent of showcasing the typically unshowcased emerging artists and grass root theatre companies.

After 7pm, the gallery regularly hosts performance and theatre acts in their back theater called the “black box.” There you can attend a Molotov theatre show or a performance of Naked Girls Reading (which is exactly what it sounds like).
