This month, UMOCA will open its doors to our first ever exhibition of work by contemporary Saudi Arabian artists, Cities of Conviction (previously, Cities of Salt). Cities of Conviction will present works from artists who are engaged in looking at the struggle and transformations of Saudi society and that delve into complex issues linking Utah and Saudi Arabia, such as oil, pilgrimage and commercial development around cultural heritage sites. Join us on August 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. for our opening reception. Suggested $8 donation.

DON'T BE ARTLESS

Humans have always used art as a way to share stories and information about their cultures, backgrounds and thoughts. Through art, we connect. We share stories. We learn about other experiences. Without art, our cultural awareness and societal growth would diminish. With your support, the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art promises to provide a safe space for artistic experimentation, innovative educational programs and community building. Don't live in a world that is Artless.

Reflections on a Summer Internship at UMOCA

"For me, this internship has really been about getting to share my love of art with staff members who love art equally as much," says Alejandra, one of UMOCA's many interns. Read more about her experience on our blog. You can also spread the word that we are currently looking for four fall interns to help continue the work we do at UMOCA!
