Art Access connects people by providing creative opportunities to explore our diversity through the visual, literary, and performing arts. We believe that valuing the full range of human experience is intrinsic to a civil and respectful society.
We offer a diverse collection of mission-driven programs, including gallery exhibitions, workshops, artist residencies, literary arts activities, a mentorship program, and community outreach. Many of these programs have benefited from partnerships with local educational, artistic, and public service organizations. We are an affiliate of VSA, which is a program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts through its Office of VSA & Accessibility. We are the only arts organization in Utah that focuses on serving individuals with disabilities and, in 2014, we celebrated 30 years of making a creative difference in our community.
During Covid 19 we reduced our office space and programming capacities. We’ve since been bringing some of our programs back and have opened our office to other organizations to rent for workshop or exhibition space.
