Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center

The Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center (DWCAC) is located in the former Allen & Jemison Co. Hardware building located on the corner of 7th Street and Greensboro Avenue on the same block as the Historic Bama Theatre. Managed by the Arts Council, the DWCAC is a hub of arts and cultural activity in the City of Tuscaloosa and provides Downtown Tuscaloosa with valuable gathering space where artists, educators, and community members can come together to work, meet, rehearse, create, and experience art together. The DWCAC houses the Alabama Power Grand Hall and the Rotary Club of Tuscaloosa Black Box Theatre which provides the perfect space for exciting performances by our cultural community as well as a beautiful scene for social events through our private event rentals. The DWCAC also participates in the monthly First Friday events and art walk that take place on the first Friday of the month in downtown Tuscaloosa. Local galleries, businesses, and restaurants are open in the evening for the community to experience what downtown Tuscaloosa has to offer.
