MadArt Studio is an artists’ workspace, gallery, 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 century 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 275 guests (175 seated), or a celebratory meal with your closest friends and family. By choosing to host your event at MadArt Studio, you are in turn supporting artists in creating new, immersive exhibitions and sharing them with the community.
Get in touch with our event coordinator, stop by to see the space for yourself, and let us help you create a memorable experience for you and your guests.
