We Provide a Place for All Visual Artists to Share their Genius.

The 2nd Friday of every Month at the Urban Arts Gallery (in the Gateway), we invite emerging artists to bring up to two pieces of their work for our event. Artists and general public in attendance vote for their favorites – five winners showcase at the gallery until our next Connect

This year, at our annual Connect Gala, a grant of $4000 will be awarded to the artists who have received the most votes throughout the year. We provide this fiscal support to show our artists that we value their contribution to the community and culture.

We Help Artists Find Opportunities.

Our team scours Salt Lake City for professional arts opportunities. We corral these opportunities to our events in order to meet the needs of our artists, so that they can focus on their creativity and accomplish their dreams.

We Provide Free Entrepreneurial Guidance and Support.

In partnership with the podcast, I am Salt Lake, Connect will record a live monthly podcast featuring a panel of professional arts leaders from the community, who will engage and discuss prospects available to artists, their own journeys, and advice for those emerging.
