THE IX ART PARK
In the center of the IX development is a sweeping one-acre park expanse
that is home to the IX Art Park, a sculptural, mural-festooned interactive space for spontaneous dreaming that's free and open to the public. The IX Art Park demonstrates the power of collective creativity. As a cultural magnet for the city of Charlottesville, the IX Art Park provides a model for community building and the role of private entities in creating civic infrastructure.
Come explore the creativity of local artists or attend one of the many special events and festivals from live music concerts to meditative retreats, theater performances, poetry readings and more. The IX Art Park has both indoor and outdoor event space that can be rented for special occasions - weddings, company picnics, private parties or whatever you can imagine. Outdoor events can range in size from 100 to 3,000 people. The outside event space consists of a large concrete platform with a covered stage, grassy parkland that houses a living nest for shade, multiple picnic tables, and lounge chairs surrounded by murals, interactive drawing space, and scuptures. The inside event space consists of an open nightclub-style room that holds 199 people with a dance floor, stage, bar, and art gallery. There's plenty of parking and bathrooms too.
The IX Art Park is also home to various craftspeople, including a makerspace with industrial grade equipment, Tinkersmiths Charlottesville.
