Events at the HCA

“Had my dream wedding here! It's such a beautiful and charming place. The staff is top notch, and our guests loved taking in the local art. If you're looking for an event space, I highly recommend.”

The Harrison Center for the Arts is not only a gallery and studio space, but an event space. We offer six unique venues that can be rented out for weddings, parties, business meetings, and all kinds of special occasions. Read about each space, and see which one will serve your event best.

The Gymnasium

The Gymnasium is the Harrison Center’s largest event space. It is a remnant of the 1920s complete with vintage hardwood floors and wooden bleachers for extra seating. Is it available for everything from formal events to photo shoots to basketball games. Decorate the space so that it serves the needs of your event.

The Harrison Gallery

In the Harrison Center’s main gallery, you can always find art on the wall, and the large windows let in plenty of natural light. The gallery is attached to a small kitchen, and a table can be lowered down from the ceiling for lunches and business meetings. In total, the Harrison Center gallery seats 70.

The Underground

Underground is a smaller space in the Harrison Center basement. It’s perfect for small conferences and even has a small stage for music events.

Hank and Dolly's Gallery

Hank and Dolly's Gallery is another small space in the basement and has large windows that let in natural light. However, the windows can be blacked out for multimedia presentations.

The Courtyard

The Courtyard is a grassy, outdoor space off of 16th Street that is great for wedding receptions, parties, and tented events.

Speck Gallery

The Speck Gallery is a chapel turned art and event space. It can easily accommodate small receptions and has a stage, making it ideal for  weddings and presentations.
