UCA is pleased to announce Cache Valley Center for the Arts as this week's featured member!
Read below to learn more about Cache Valley Center for the Arts and what this organization has to offer.

How would you describe yourself or your organization in three words?

Nurturing arts ecosystem

What is your favorite things about Utah's arts, humanities and cultural community?

I would put Cache Valley (and by extension Utah) up against any community for the quality of our venues, the talent of our arts organizations, the financial support of our sponsors and the generosity of our audiences. I'm also impressed with how well Cache Valley's arts community works together.

Briefly describe an experience you've had with the arts or humanities that was impactful.

I had the chance to interview founding trustees of Cache Valley Center for the Arts. Really talented business people who faced significant challenges with very little money. What surprised me was how willing they were to talk about those experiences. How they cleared their calendars to hold these interviews. How these serious, practical people lit up when they talked about what sounded like really hard work, how they reconnected instantly with each other in between interviews. How their efforts united them and brought the community together. It was really impressive.

Finally, is there anything else you'd like our members to know? (surprising talents, interesting facts, important causes, favorite songs, etc.)

(it might be fun in a future installment to highlight the whole theatre district. four performance venues built between 1901 and 1935 that are still being used for the arts and were once run by the same family but are now run by three different entities. add to that one of two LDS tabernacles that are used for secular performances and you have a killer arts and culture district. Last summer there were 10 plays in rolling repertory between the three theatres and five free noon concerts at the tabernacle. - Impressive.)
