Brolly Arts was founded in 1995 in Salt Lake City, Utah, to fill a niche in a burgeoning arts community. Director and founder Amy McDonald Sanyer recognized a need for an organization that would support and enhance existing arts organizations and independent artists by creating forums for collaboration and experimentation. The term "brolly" is British slang for umbrella, an appropriate name for an organization that has strived for inclusiveness since its inception. Through workshops, performances, installations, and commissions, Brolly Arts promotes the visual and performing arts, including dance, music, theater, literature, photography, and much more. Brolly Arts strives to provide professional development for artists, create collaborative opportunities for artists from a variety of disciplines, offer creative and educational experiences to the community, maintain overall excellence, and pay artists living wages. In meeting its goals, Brolly Arts contributes to the community's cultural vibrancy and artistic diversity.
