Arts Garage

180 NE 1st St. Delray Beach, FL 33444 | Delray Beach | 561-450-6357

Location Description:

Don't judge a space by its cover -- even when it's the ground floor of a parking garage. The Delray Arts Garage is just that, and its unassuming exterior holds visual artists, musicians, performers, film presenters and arts educators all doing their best to entertain. Locals line up on the regular for the latest lineup-, which include concerts, plays, spoken word events, community round tables and even an arts academy. The non-profit organization is all about bolstering the community's art offerings, which makes it a much beloved landmark.
