New Digs Coming Soon

Well our family is about to move to the DC area and I am so excited about all of the art galleries and museums. We are going to have so much fun exploring our new digs.

Here is a place that looks interesting, it is called Workhouse Arts Center. It is on 55 acres of land and offers gallery space, classes/workshops, cooperative studios, performance and theatre venues.

According to the Workhouse Arts Center website, “The Workhouse Arts Center is a project of the Lorton Arts Foundation. The expansive complex, once a correctional facility and now a center for arts, culture, and history, has a rich past and an exciting new presence.”
