Surround your guests in Charlottesville’s rich art tradition.

With its private main gallery and two floors of unique and changing exhibits, the McGuffey Art Center can be a backdrop of creativity for business functions and private gatherings. The Starnes Classroom offers space for smaller meetings or for catering convenience. And, if you choose, meander into working studios and mingle with the artists. Imagine your wedding or other social occasion, your corporate lecture or seminar inspired from some of our region’s most talented artists.

The McGuffey Art Center, originally an elementary school dating back to 1916, and now for over 39 years Charlottesville’s only working artists’ cooperative, is located in the historic section of the city only half a block from the Downtown Mall.
