Since 2009, MadArt has served as a catalyst for new and unexpected artworks in Seattle by providing artists with opportunities to create large-scale installations, such as Mad Homes (2011), Mad Campus (2015), and Middle Fork (2015). Through both on-site and off-site exhibits, MadArt gives artists an avenue to the public and the public access to art. MadArt’s mission is to support artists in our community, to bring art into our lives in unexpected ways, and to create community involvement in the arts.

MadArt Studio is a large-scale artists’ workspace and private event venue located in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, just north of downtown. As a contemporary art space, large-scale sculptures and installations are periodically in-progress or on display, and can add a unique bit of character to your affair. Featuring the building’s original brick facade and walls alongside exposed beams and floor-to-ceiling windows, MadArt Studio provides a distinctive yet versatile space for a variety of gatherings, including corporate meetings, intimate dinners, and cocktail soirees.

Constructed in the 1920s, the original brick storefront was once a car dealership and later a DMV where the first driving tests were conducted. Nearly a decade later, this historic building has once again been re-imagined with the help of celebrated Seattle design firm, Graham Baba Architects, this time as a hub for unique events and artistic innovation. Nearly 3800 square feet, a full kitchen, and high ceilings make MadArt Studio the ideal location for a reception of up to 225 guests (150 seated), or a celebratory meal with your closest friends and family.
