Not quite in Midtown, on the edge of SOSA and a few blocks away from the Plaza District is where you will find Urban Art.
What was originally built as an automotive school in the early 1900's is now a glass-art, urban event space. Urban Art is home to Art Fusion, a fused glass studio and Blue Sage Studios, a glassblowing shop.
The Urban Art venue is an eclectic, quirky and constantly evolving space and a true urban experience.
Since opening our renovated space in 2009, we have been offering party packages for groups, small and large, who want to enjoy a creative event space with full-time working art studios. Rent the whole building and courtyard or just one of our spaces. We have the space to help you create the party of your dreams.
Our working gallery spaces can keep your guests entertained and engaged. And if you want more than just a cool setting, we have interactive packages in which we can make a custom piece for your special occasion or you can make your own art. (Please contact the galleries directly for interactive glass parties. Links to the studios are available on our Home Page.
