Join us on Saturday, August 3rd as Workhouse Arts Center and Ackshun Jackson present 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.
This outdoor festival includes live painting by skilled muralists, live music and performances, food trucks, cash bar, local vendors and 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.
The 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.
A limited number of Early Bird General Admission tickets are on sale starting May 1 through May 15. Beginning May 16 through August 2nd, regular General Admission tickets can be purchased online for $20. Tickets will be available at the gate on the day of the event for $25.
*Inclement weather date for this event is August 24.
