Looking for a great place to hold a party, family-reunion, wedding reception, anniversary party or commitment ceremony? ART Station is the perfect setting for a variety of functions.
ART Station is a contemporary arts center housed in a 18,500 square foot turn-of-the-century historic structure. The "Trolley Car Barn" was built by the Georgia Railway and Power Company and served as the terminus for the "Atlanta Rapid Transit" (thus the ART in the ART Station name) trolley line that ran from Marietta Street in downtown Atlanta to Stone Mountain. Today the building serves as a contemporary arts center housing a theatre, five art galleries, gift shop; rehearsal, dance, ceramics, and music studios, class rooms, conference room and catering kitchen.
There are a variety of rental opportunities at ART Station. A menu of choices are listed on the other side of this brochure, but ART Station staff members make every effort to handle other types of requests and events.
The intimate ART Station Theatre seats 120 and is a great space for weddings, commitment ceremonies, fashion shows, play readings, sales presentations, dance and piano recitals… the possibilities are endless.
The ART Station upstairs gallery space is the perfect setting for large gatherings: including political and school fund-raisers, retirement parties, holiday parties…just about any type event you can think of. The galleries are filled with contemporary art exhibitions that rotate every other month. The galleries can comfortably accommodate 250 – 300 people for a stand-up type reception. There are two bars in the building: one in the upstairs gallery and one in the downstairs gallery.
If it’s a party you want…ART Station has the space. The rehearsal hall can even be converted into a disco dance room. If you just need a place to hold a meeting, or have a wedding, baby shower, or small birthday party, our small conference room makes the perfect setting with beautiful art work on the walls and the room sets just under the historic loft where electricity was generated for the Trolley Car Lines. Classrooms and the dance studio are also available on an hourly rental basis.
ART Station is not caterer specific, meaning you can bring in your own food, or pick the caterer of your choice. The ART Station staff is very familiar with local caterers and will be happy to suggest just the right group to handle your event. Catering tables, party chairs and a large capacity ice machine are available at no extra charge. Renters must, however, provide their own linens.
ART Station can provide both "cash" and "open" bar options. Cash bars are restricted to beer and wine only. Open bars may provide liquor on a "give away" basis only.
