The Town Hall Education, Arts and Recreation Campus (THEARC) has been a cornerstone for community redevelopment in River East/Far Southeast. A multipurpose community center, arts education campus and performance space, the building was the first one of its kind in what was then a neglected area of town, and its impact has really brought some of the surrounding blocks back to life. If you want a sense of the pulse of contemporary African American DC, catch a show or see one of the center’s frequent special exhibitions. THEARC is about 3.5 miles southeast of Nationals Park, and three-quarters of a mile from the closest Metro; it’s best to drive here.
