ABOUT

The Garage is an art space/concert venue/amateur film theater/impromptu studio/potluck dining hall/etc located on 1st Street across from Emancipation Park (formerly Lee Park) in Charlottesville, Virginia.

On any given night, you can find the Garage’s door wide open as we host art openings/viewings of monthly exhibitions or concerts by local and regional bands that bring together large crowds in the stadium seating (aka: on the hill of the park) across the street. We’re also known to host an occasional film screening, dance party, art performance, potluck, or other creative gathering as requested (or hosted) by a community member.

Here at the Garage we value community, creativity, collaboration, and accessibility. We love the paradox of the Garage’s intimacy and yet strange publicness.

We are interested in what it means to be creating and facilitating art in a “public yet private” context. We are not exactly sure where the Garage is located within those realms, but we are inquisitively exploring the topic through various art projects and collaborative conversations.

 

LOCATION

The Garage is located on 1st Street between Market and Jefferson Streets. It is a small, single-car garage located across the street from Emancipation Park. Although we do not have an official street address, you can locate us by heading towards the Christ Episcopal Church office building at 100 West Jefferson Street – Charlottesville, VA22902.
