I am very pleased to announce that I have joined the Board of Directors at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, (UMOCA). I have been helping out the past year or so with some of their programs, Art Fit, the Covid Ask and attending regular development meetings. I am very impressed with the UMOCA staff and especially with the new director, Laura Aldred Hurtado, she is a power house of talent with a clear vision for UMOCA. Next year is the 90th anniversary of the museum and Ms. Hurtado will most certainly put this museum on the map with a nod to past successes and a preview of what is to come in the future!
It has been challenging to plan events with the Covid restrictions in place in Salt Lake City but we have come up with a few fun ideas I think you will enjoy! Please click the link for Date Night at the Museum, that will be held on three Saturdays in June, the 13th, 20th and 27th. Only $200 per couple!
Since the museum has been closed, the current exhibitions can be virtually seen on the website. They also set up live interviews with two of the artists currently on display in the galleries. You can view the recorded versions, the first is Devin Harclerode’s interview about her show “Boundaries” for an insightful view into her works. The second will be posted to the site shortly, stay tuned!
Please mark your calendars and save the date for the UMOCA Gala, scheduled for October 24th, 2020! This event will also be Covid safe, with only 60 tickets available for a fantastic evening. More details to come soon.
Lastly, if you would like to volunteer to help, please let me know! Be the change you hope to see in the world and stay safe!
Congratulations Cynthia! How exciting!!!
Thanks Anne! It has been really great to see how the museum works and I look forward to helping to shape the future of this institution! The board is amazing and there are a few new recruits like me to add to the mix. Very exciting!
