The 2nd Saturday Art Walk at the Workhouse showcases the diverse work of more than 100 visual artists in a unique historic venue, creating an atmosphere that encourages visitors to immerse themselves in the richness of this creative community.

Guests can tour seven unique studio buildings, mix and mingle with artists, buy original works of art, experience ever-changing exhibitions and meet featured artists, all while enjoying light refreshments and music. The social atmosphere of the monthly art walk makes it the perfect destination for a date night or girls' night out, as well as for art collectors and art appreciation groups alike. These monthly events are also perfect for family art outings.

In the Vulcan Gallery this night, a cutting edge set of performance-as-book experiences take place 6-9 pm. Part of Inner Librare, a multimedia exhibition of artist's book and book objects, performers from both coasts interpret several of the larger works. Co-sponsored by Fall for the Book; curated by Ceci Cole McInturff for the George Mason University  School of Visual Arts. Learn more at fallforthebook.org and 87-FLORIDA.com.
