Hold your next private function in the midst of outstanding contemporary art from the Mid-Atlantic States.

Before Arlington Arts Center was established as a grassroots arts organization, it served as a local elementary school. Our rich history enables our 1910 building to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Because of its illustrious reputation and buzzing location, Arlington Arts Center is a perfect venue for special events.

Adorning our main event space, the Tiffany Gallery, are Louis Comfort Tiffany Studio windows. These beautiful stained-glass panels, which are part of Arlington County’s Public Art Collection, make a great backdrop for any event. The Meyer and Smith Galleries emanate a creative current, encouraging mingling and discussion among guests.

Arlington Arts Center makes a unique backdrop for a variety of events, from rehearsal dinners, to retirement gatherings, fundraisers, and birthday parties for children.

You can even rent a classroom for children’s art events. After creating a roomful of unique projects with one of our qualified instructors, parents are welcome to bring their own cake and presents to celebrate in the classroom.

Included in your rental fees are use of our catering kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, and sink. We have chairs and tables for your use, as well as two large scale projection screens and wireless network. As caretakers of numerous artworks as well as a historic landmark, we do not permit red wine or red liquids at any event. With the exception of the children’s art parties mentioned above, we do not rent the facility for youth events. Finally, we carefully select every curator, artist, or performer involved in our mission of supporting the contemporary arts. We do not permit rentals for one-night exhibitions or other arts events or classes unrelated to AAC programs.
