Description

The center has a large gallery for our monthly juried All-Media Show, 64 artist's studios, and the Mezzanine Gallery where we host seven Single-Artist shows a month. Date July 5, 2003. The Shockoe Bottom Arts Center has become the Petersburg Regional Art Center. The lease was up in Richmond and the City of Petersburg offered us a very nice building in Old Town Petersburg.

History

The Shockoe Bottom Arts Center began September 1994 with the primary mission to provide an opportunity for local artists to get their work before the public. The Art Center started with 50 studios and a large performance area. In May 1996 we added ten studios in the performance area and July 1998 we expanded to the second floor with 65 additional studios, and a new exhibition space called the Tobacco Gallery. The building used to be an old tobacco factory. Closed June 28, 2003.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
