The Workhouse Arts Center is a massive adaptive reuse project which re-purposes the former Lorton Prison into a remarkable arts center providing 300 performances, 100 visual arts exhibitions in 12 gallery spaces, 800 classes in visual arts, performing arts, culinary, and Art of Movement, and supports the art and studios of 85 professional artists. The Workhouse also provides several large-scale community events including Workhouse Brewfest, Workhouse Fireworks, and an annual Haunted Trail. Come visit the Workhouse on the Second Saturday of each month from 6-9 p.m. to talk with our remarkable artists in their studios, have a little wine and cheese, and during the summer months hear a free concert in our Rizer Pavilion. Then don't forget to visit our new Lucy Burns Museum (opening 1/25/2020) honoring 91 years of Prison History and the story of the imprisonment of the suffragists at the Workhouse.
