Engine Room Art Space opened in the heart of Downtown Hagerstown in June 2015 as a place for the community to exchange ideas and form new perspectives of what art can be and what art does.


During its tenure, the Engine Room Art Space welcomed local emerging artists to showcase art that presented challenging ideas or processes and served as a platform for artists of outstanding talent and quality. It was a positive space for people to talk, make connections, get inspired, learn, and gain experience. 

The Engine Room's final exhibition was in March, 2020.
