Every month, the Utah Arts Alliance opens its doors to visual artists in the community, through the “Connect” Program. Connect offers the rare opportunity for artists to showcase their work to the public each month, as well as begin the process of establishing themselves in the SLC art community.
At Connect, visual artists (painters, sketch artists, photographers, sculptors, mixed media, and culinary artists) are able to submit work for public showcase, vote for their favorite works to be entered into Urban Arts Gallery and December Connect, and hear from established artists and organizations on the subject of art.
Connect is pretty straightforward. Be sure to read the following information, before coming out:
