The Culture Center was founded in 1990 primarily to meet the needs of non-profit organizations and other institutions that do not maintain their own special event spaces. While the Center continues to fulfill that purpose, it has also become a choice venue for individuals to host their own private events.
The Culture Center also produces events designed to promote community and cultural exchange. When our calendar and resources permit, we partner with artists, musicians and writers to showcase their work. We have hosted non-profit groups such as the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Columbus Avenue BID, World Music Institute, schools and colleges. Our documentary film, Explorer: The Life of Bruce Klepinger, highlighted the life of a trek leader in Nepal and led us to support a Nepali student through college in the United States. We have hosted functions to benefit breast cancer research and children with AIDS. We look forward to developing new programming ideas.
Whether you have a global reach or a more personal celebration in mind, The Culture Center can accommodate up to 99 people. Access is directly from Columbus Avenue down a lovely sky-lit stairway flanked by century old exposed brick overlooking a rock garden. The main room can be arranged with a staging area and audience style seating, or more casually. The space has a light oak floor, white walls and track lighting. Like a blank canvas, it can be decorated and styled to suit your vision.

-Full kitchen and restroom
