About the Project

Summary: As many Montgomery County and greater D.C. area residents know, the old Blair Auditorium was once a major performing arts venue in Silver Spring - and was one of the best-used facilities in the greater D.C. area. The auditorium has been boarded up and now sits unused. This project aims to breathe life back into the auditorium and make the auditorium available for community use.

Location: The auditorium is located within the former Montgomery Blair High School building at the corner of Dale Drive and Wayne Avenue, five blocks from the Silver Spring central business district. View a map.
