One of reasons Theresa Cameron was hired as Van Ness Main Street’s executive director was her extensive background in promoting the arts as an important component in reviving commercial areas. She is laying the groundwork for such a revival in Van Ness by organizing the first Upper Northwest DC Arts Forum:
