The Space

MadArt Studio is a large-scale artists’ workshop, gallery, and private event venue located in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, just north of downtown. As a contemporary art space, immersive 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 300 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 artwork and sharing their work 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.

The Building

Since 2009, MadArt has served as a catalyst for new and unexpected artworks in Seattle by creating opportunities for large-scale installations, such as Mad Homes (2011), Mad Campus (2014), and Middle Fork (2015). Through these exhibits, MadArt provides artists with an avenue to the public, and the public with access to art. In 2014, MadArt opened MadArt Space, a spacious artists’ studio and event venue in South Lake Union, continuing its mission to support artists in our community, to bring art into our lives in unexpected ways, and to create community involvement in the arts.


Typically open Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-5pm though hours may fluctuate in between exhibitions. Updated hours are always available on our website.


Paid street and lot parking; free after 8pm and on Sundays.
