Review for Arlington Art Center, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars

AAC is in an historical school building that has been renovated and expanded to include a gallery with 3 floor-to-ceiling Tiffany windows. This gallery is a popular event venue and adds to our earned income. AAC's mission includes cutting edge contemporary art exhibits drawn from regional emerging artists which change 5 times a year. As an arts incubator, AAC provides subsidized studio space and business support for 13 artists, who can remain in residence for up to six years. Classes for 3-year-olds and up run throughout the year. My photography improved tremendously during a class taken at AAC from a nationally-recognized photographer.
