D.C. Arts Center Facing Eviction

A seemingly endless battle between the city government of Washington, D.C. and a small arts center housed in a former junior high school came to a head this week, as the District served the Millenium Arts Center with an eviction notice. Accusations are flying back and forth – the MAC doesn’t pay its rent; the city doesn’t keep its word; etc. – but both sides seem almost eager to force a public confrontation over a dispute which has been simmering quietly for several years.
