The Westport Arts Center (WAC) is a nonprofit visual and performing arts organization located along the banks of the Saugatuck River. WAC’s 1,000 square foot contemporary Gallery is available for private, nonprofit, and corporate rentals. Our venue offers a unique environment for special events including business meetings, fundraisers, birthday parties, bridal showers, educational workshops, as well as many other kinds of celebrations and gatherings.

Large picture windows allow for beautiful natural light and excellent riverside views. Interesting art inspires all types of conversation. Attendees can mingle while sipping wine and sampling hors d’oeuvres or sit down for a more formal event or presentation. The layout of certain exhibitions may limit the capacity of the Gallery.
