The Dwyer Cultural Center

David Johnston

 

As an organization that focuses on workspace solutions for our city’s performing arts community, we were saddened to learn that our colleagues at the Dwyer Cultural Center will be cutting down hours and reducing the volume of public programs in order to focus efforts on funding. The wonderful space at the Dwyer Cultural Center came into existence through a stipulation 20 years ago by the New York City Board of Estimate, specifying that the formerly abandoned Dwyer Warehouse located at 258 St. Nicholas Avenue (at 125th Street) include space reserved exclusively for a non-profit organization. Since opening its doors in 2009, this state-of-the-art, 7,000 square foot, multi-media cultural center has been dedicated to promoting and presenting the cultural and historical riches of Harlem, offering outstanding arts education programs for all ages, and supporting local artists by providing an affordable venue for exhibitions, rehearsals and workshops.
