As an advocate for the arts, the Regional Arts Commission supports artists and arts enthusiasts in a variety of ways. This includes providing rental space within our administrative building. Built in 2003 to serve the administrative and artistic needs of the community, our building is located in the Delmar Loop, voted as one of the “10 Great Streets in America” by the American Planning Association. The Delmar Loop is a six-block enclave of entertainment, culture, dining and shopping. Our three-story building houses, The Gallery at RAC, Cultural Resource Center, The Studio, conference rooms, and RAC’s administrative offices.
Our uniquely designed space can easily accommodate meetings, workshops, receptions and exhibitions. With three attractive conference rooms, our building provides a contemporary environment that accommodates both large and small groups for public and private events.
The following spaces are available for rental:
