About this Event

Workhouse Arts Center and Ackshun Jackson Presents:

the WORKHOUSE MURAL PROJECT AND FESTIVAL

Join us on Saturday, August 3rd for the inaugural Workhouse Mural Project (WMP) and Festival. This one-day event is the first mural project of its kind in Fairfax County, Virginia and will showcase the creativity of regional artists whose primary art form is mural painting. The outdoor festival will include live painting by skilled muralists, music and performances, food trucks, cash bar, local vendors, sponsor booths and more. Meet and greet our muralists, watch them create new works of art, and enjoy a day of fun and creativity with family and friends.

WMP will provide guests from across the DMV and surrounding communities with an opportunity to explore mural artwork by professional artists and will create a social experience centered around three-dimensional cubes as the canvas. Murals are part of the Workhouse Arts Center’s campus history, with many examples of prisoner-created murals still visible outside of some historical prison buildings.*Please note the Workhouse Mural Project and Festival has an inclement weather date for Saturday August 24. Tickets will only be refunded should the entire event be canceled.

GET INVOLVED
