The Firehouse Del Rio Reviews
Jan 02, 2008
The firehouse, once upon a time Del Rio’s original firehouse, city hall, and jail! Now it is the center for promoting arts and culture. The firehouse offers an array of classes anything from music lessons, to painting, ceramics, photography, and dance lessons.
The firehouse, participates avidly in promoting the arts here in Del Rio. It is one of the places that participates in the first Friday art walk. On the first Friday of each month the Del Rio city council has set up a walk where you can go from gallery to gallery viewing the work of local and regional artists. The firehouse is one such stop on the walk. However it does not have to be a first Friday to enter this gallery, you can visit this place anytime and get a guided tour if you call ahead.
Besides participating in the art walk the firehouse is also the place to go if you want to find out what is playing at the local theater and they play a big part in getting companies to come down and perform in Del Rio.
They also (as mentioned above) teach classes for the local community, the classes vary from semester to semester it depends on who they enlist and what they’re individual talents are. If you have a talent that you want to share with the community all you have to do is go down to the firehouse and sign your class up! My daughters have taken a creative writing class and a painting class there before and I personally signed up for a black and white photography class where I learned to develop my film as well as “take better more artsy pictures!” This is also the place where my husband and I took our salsa lessons.
Part of the list got the border town blues?
