The Art Place at Mountain View
About The Art Place
The Art Place – Mountain View is a Cobb County Facility. We are part of the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs division of Cobb County Government. We have spaces designed to be flexible for visual and performing arts activities including painting, drawing, pottery, dance, drama, and more! The facility also offers gallery exhibitions, community events, theater productions and artist markets. The Black Box Theater, conference room and classrooms are available for rent to arts related organizations.
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.
Today the Art Place serves 20,000 members of the Cobb County Community, and we intend to keep that number growing! In the Summer of 2019 we executed over 62 summer camps ranging from pottery intensives to Cabaret Camp. During the year we offer a rotating schedule of classes for adults and children. Additionally, We host +10 community events annually outside of our normal programming.
