Some days it’s fireworks. Other days, hula dancers and glass blowing demonstrations. You might even find craft beer tastings, live music, fire dancers, or plein air painting. You never know exactly what you’ll experience during a Second Saturday Art Walk at the Workhouse Arts Center, but we’ll definitely delight your senses and inspire your creativity.
Join us from 6p-9p on the Second Saturday of each month to discover all the Workhouse Arts Center has to offer. Whether it’s your first visit or your hundredth, the Second Saturday Art Walk is the perfect time to meet nearly 100 Resident and Associate Artists, creating art in the studios or exhibiting in our galleries. Thrilling performances of dance, cabaret, comedy, big band, jazz, and theater. Indulgent classes in the art of mixology or cuisines from around the globe. Art exhibitions in nine galleries of the region’s finest sculpture, painting, glass, ceramics, and fiber art works.
All of this excitement – and more – is tucked away at the Workhouse Arts Center, a 55-acre visual and performing arts center in Lorton, VA, located on the historic grounds of the former DC Correctional Facility at Lorton.
