The John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

 
The Kennedy Center is our biggest employer.  The building itself is huge, and can be very confusing the first few times you go there to work.  If you get lost, ask someone for directions, or you could find yourself wandering about and wind up late as a result.http://www.kennedy-center.org/index.cfmhttp://www.kennedy-center.org/index.cfmshapeimage_2_link_0
