Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center

About

Located on Montgomery College's Takoma Park/Silver Spring campus (7995 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, MD), The CAC complex was designed by The SmithGroup and opened in 2009.  The complex  consists of a 500 seat main multi-use concert hall & theatre space (Theatre I), a 116 seat lecture hall or laboratory theatre space (Theatre II),  a dance studio (Dance Cube), the Cultural Arts Center Gallery, a film editing lab, and multiple classrooms for academic classes and workshops. All of these gathering spaces are immediately adjacent to our large main lobby, or atrium.  A large marquee faces north at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and East-West Highway and informs the community about events occurring in the Cultural Arts Center.

Through the programs of the Cultural Arts Center, we seek to improve cultural literacy, encourage cross-cultural understanding, and to build bridges between the arts, cultural studies, and all disciplines concerned with the expression of culture.  We seek to acknowledge the differences and similarities between our own cultures and those surrounding us.  In order to meet this mission, the CAC provides a comprehensive program focusing on the cultural intersection of the arts, sciences, humanities, and social sciences, and the influence of human culture on the natural and built environments.  We examine traditional and contemporary indigenous, American, and international cultural expression through presentation of music, theatre, dance, cultural exhibitions, film, lectures, forums and cultural exhibitions.  Through less formal gatherings we encourage opportunities for our students, the community,  faculty, and staff to gather and engage in discussions about our own and other cultures.  The programs of the CAC, and the CAC facility supports all areas of the campus including student life, academic programs of all kinds, and  external community use in the form of performances, workshops and conferences.  We frequently provide opportunities addressing campus and college-wide initiatives related to diversity and multiculturalism.
