LOCATION

Located just shy of downtown Raleigh on Saint Mary’s Street, we are conveniently located less than a block from Hillsborough Street and across from Saint Mary’s School.  

Arts Together resides in the Tucker Carriage House, a 19th century historic landmark owned by Raleigh Housing Authority. Arts Together renovated the building for Raleigh Housing Authority over 20 years ago, thereby saving an historic treasure for the capital city so that it could be enjoyed by generations to come. This rare structure, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, still stands today because a coalition of public and private agencies worked cooperatively to make it happen. Arts Together was not only an ideally-suited tenant, but also drove the project ahead by securing funding to renovate the space. Its adaptation into bright, airy studios and classrooms is a testament to preservation and appropriate reuse. Arts Together and the Tucker Carriage House marry aesthetics and function in a way that breathes new life into a space steeped in the history of our city.

PARKING

Due to Arts Together's location in the historic Tucker Carriage House, parking can sometimes be challenging.  Streetside parking is the most convenient option for guests and students and is always free!  We kindly ask you not to park in the drop-off circle in front of the building or in the private lot behind the building.
