* New for 2017 *
In the event of inclement weather, The Workhouse Arts Center will make a decision regarding closure and will update our website to reflect the status of our campus. For the sake of clarity, we will now use a coded system. The current closure code will always be visible below, and will be posted to our homepage.
Code red: Full Campus Closure, only authorized personnel are permitted on site and all performances, events, and classes are cancelled.
Code orange: Public Closure, only staff and artists are permitted on site. Galleries and buildings are closed to the public. Artists are urged to exercise caution when visiting their studios. All performances, events, and classes are cancelled.
Code yellow: Partial Closure – classes are cancelled on a case by case basis, teachers will be notified of cancellations and they will in turn notify their students. Galleries are open unless otherwise posted. Performances are cancelled on a case by case basis, ticketholders will be notified if their event was cancelled or postponed and our listings will be updated to reflect the most current information.
Code green: Open with Caution, all facilities are open and events continue as planned, but visitors and students are encouraged to be careful when visiting the site as hazards may be present.
Code purple: Business as Usual, no abnormal conditions
We will make the current closure code available to the public as soon as possible through our website and Facebook page.
Please note that our closure policy, while informed by Fairfax County Government, will not always reflect the same closure status.
The Workhouse Arts Center decides on the best closure status for the safety of our guests, students, instructors, artists, performers, and staff.
Current Weather Closure Status: Purple
