A Vibrant Home for Culture, Education, and City Life on Capitol Hill

Hill Center presents rotating exhibits by regional artists in the exquisitely renovated Civil War-era Old Naval Hospital. Hill Center Galleries consists of six distinct exhibition spaces, many with 14-foot ceilings and 8-foot windows. Since opening in 2011, we have been privileged to present the work of several hundreds of emerging and established artists. All artwork is available for purchase and a portion of proceeds supports free community programs at Hill Center, a non-profit arts and cultural organization.
