The Art Place – Mountain View is a facility of Cobb County PARKS Department. We seek to encourage fine arts programs that will enhance and promote processes of artistic merit. This is done by fostering creativity in each individual rather than the emphasis on a finished product. The Art Place has spaces designed to be flexible for visual and performing arts activities. The facility also offers gallery exhibitions, theater productions and meeting space for non-profit arts related organizations.
The Art Place is a program and a building created just for the arts. Upon leasing and converting a restaurant to an arts center in 1986, the county soon discovered the need and desire for arts programs in East Cobb. The Steeple House Arts Center opened it’s doors in January of 1987. This facility was located at the corner of Johnson Ferry and Paper Mill Roads. Within three years the response to the programming in this facility gave the county officials the direction needed to build a building just for the arts. The Art Place is the result of a dream and the undying participation in the arts from the East Cobb Community.
The Art Place has something for everyone: from the two year old in Mommy and Me classes to the older adult wanting to take one of the many visual art classes. Please view the links to classes and camps, opportunities to see gallery shows, theater productions, registration information and free outdoor concerts for families.
