On one floor, high school students explore careers in the arts, on another ceramic tiles are being made, while down the hall delicious smells waft from the Italian bakery. Turn a corner, and a yoga class is in progress, while in the next wing, an accountant is seeing her first clients of the day. On the lowest level, a craftsman is fashioning stones from the river into incredible lamps, while in the gallery, an artist hangs his latest works. It’s a typical day at the Washington Street Business & Cultural Center, where art blends with commerce and personal growth, and a unique community thrives.
