Arts & Entertainment Advisory Committee

Chair: Ray Barry

The goal of the Silver Spring Arts & Entertainment District is to provide a welcoming, eclectic, urban center in downtown that showcases the arts and entertainment community, while providing a unique source of culture, recreation, and entertainment for residents and visitors, and creates a dynamic economic anchor for downtown Silver Spring’s continued redevelopment and revitalization.

The Silver Spring Arts & Entertainment Advisory Committee is composed of representatives of various communities that make up Greater Silver Spring, including residents, large and small businesses, community activists and generally, individuals who have demonstrated an interest and an ability to support, promote and encourage the very best quality of life for all of Silver Spring through the goals of the Silver Spring Arts & Entertainment District. The Committee will advise the County Executive and the Silver Spring Regional Center on how to create and support opportunities for arts and entertainment entities to help achieve the goals of the Silver Spring Arts & Entertainment District.
