Imagine a walk-through, sculptural, mural-festooned oasis that’s free and open for the public to wander, night and day. Welcome to the IX Art Park: a public, non-commercial, interactive space for spontaneous dreaming – for residents, visitors, families and solo acts.
Indulge your eyes, ears, mind, heart and soul. It’s all about possibility. And the power of collective creativity. The IX Art Park marks Charlottesville as a cultural magnet in Virginia.
WTJU, the University of Virginia’s public radio station, operates 91.1 FM and student-run WXTJ 100.1 FM in Charlottesville.
