Imagine a walk-through, sculptural, mural-festooned Mecca that’s free and open for the public to wander, night and day. Welcome to the IX Art Park: a public, non-commercial, interactive space for spontaneous dreaming – for residents, visitors, families and solo acts.
Indulge your eyes, ears, mind, heart and soul. It’s all about possibility. And the power of collective creativity. The IX Art Park marks Charlottesville as a cultural magnet in Virginia, and will provide a new model for community building and the role of private entities in creating civic infrastructure.
The IX Art Park is located at 522 2nd Street SE in Charlottesville, Virginia. Admission is free and the park open dawn to dusk, 7 days a week (and later for events).
