January 1st, 2021 at the UAA

Our mission is to foster the Arts in all forms
in order to create an awareempowered,
and connected community.
2020 was a dumpster fire and a half. But because of all of you who supported the arts by tuning in to our virtual events, masking up and coming to our COVID-safe venues, and bought art from our gallery and online store, we are still here. We not only survived 2020, we thrived in it. Thank you.

We are so excited to share with you what is coming in 2021.

The UAA Annual Membership is now available to supporters of the arts. In addition to making a contribution, you will be entitled to numerous UAA benefits. Memberships begin at $200. For more details, contact david@utaharts.org
