Arts Garage/Creative City Collaborative
Arts Garage is a multi-disciplinary cultural hub for visual artists, musicians, performers, film presenters and arts educators. The facility is managed and programmed by Creative City Collaborative (The Collaborative), whose mission is to engage emerging artists and cultural innovators to facilitate an exchange of art and ideas and to present cutting-edge, interdisciplinary performances and exhibitions. Centrally located in downtown Delray Beach, Arts Garage’ ambiance reflects the intimate feel of the city and is fast becoming a premiere international destination for artists and audiences alike. Patrons especially enjoy Arts Garage’ B.Y.O.W. (Bring Your Own Whatever) policy, whereby ticket holders are encouraged to bring their own beverages and snacks to enjoy during performances.
Arts Garage has developed a number of highly successful series and projects, all of which attract large and diverse audiences from all areas of South Florida.
Arts Garage’ Jazz Project is a major initiative of The Collaborative designed as a vehicle to make Delray Beach an international destination for live jazz in South Florida. The Jazz Project showcases jazz icons as well as legend-in-the making jazz vocalists, violinists, saxophonists and concert pianists. Jazz Project concerts take place on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, during which time Arts Garage is transformed into an intimate jazz-club style venue.
