Eve Zhurbinskiy, an ANC commissioner, said the Kennedy Center wanted to add its name to the station after it was concerned that tourists could not find the building.
“This will help tourists navigate the city,” Zhurbinskiy said.
She added that the Kennedy Center paid to attach its name to the Foggy Bottom station, the closest Metro station to the theatre.
A Metro survey found that 26 percent of responders supported the addition to the Foggy Bottom station, while 54 percent favored the Smithsonian change, according to NBC Washington.
