As part of my ongoing effort to explore Fairfax County and bring you the best places to visit I recently stopped by the Workhouse Arts Center.

The Workhouse Arts Center is a regionally and nationally recognized innovative collaboration of visual and performing arts, education, community engagement, historical perspective, and personal enrichment.

The Workhouse currently consists of six (6) artist studio buildings, the main galleries, dance studios, music rooms, outdoor performance and event space, and the W-3 Theatre. They support more than 100 professional and emerging artists by providing them affordable studios and galleries in which to exhibit their work. Instead of only viewing the art, visitors are encouraged to interact with the artists when they visit. In addition to visual arts, the Workhouse Arts Center is home to performing arts, including theater; musical theater; film; music; and dance performances. The Workhouse also offers over 800 arts education classes and workshops in a broad spectrum of art disciplines. Each year the Workhouse Arts Center provides more than 100 exhibitions, 300 performances, and multiple large-scale community events for the region.

The Workhouse Arts Center is operated by the Workhouse Arts Foundation, Inc., a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The organization survives on income in the form of tuition and ticket sales, generous donations from the surrounding community and DC Metropolitan Region, and generous in-kind support from Fairfax County.

 

 

I love visiting different spots around our wonderful area and I hope you enjoy exploring with me.
