Announcing CUAC’s Art Club:
CUAC’s Newest Perk for Those Who Want to Get More Out of Contemporary Art

Art Club meets at contemporary art venues across the Wasatch Front for exclusive access to educational programs for understanding contemporary art, art collecting discussions, guided tours of CUAC and our partner organizations such as UMFA and UMOCA and and other venues and exhibitions of interest.

What is it like to attend an Art Club Event?

A typical event, for example, could be a guided tour of one of CUAC staff’s favorite shows around town with both a CUAC art expert and the curator of the exhibition. We would talk about the art and its place in our culture, understand how to look at it, and have a frank discussion about what it means to collect that artist, both in a local and international context. The short tour would be followed by a mixer over cocktails, wine, or beer nearby.

Why Art Club?

This educational program and social group provides an opportunity to learn about all Utah has to offer in contemporary art and how Utah fits into a larger national art conversation. It is to make connections with like-minded people. It is to learn about how to view and understand contemporary art. It is to learn how speculative art collecting works and understand brand recognition within contemporary art. It is to provide our members with unique opportunities to deepen their understanding and participation with contemporary art in our community.  Art Club also offers opportunities for artists to meet art collectors, dealers, and curators and learn how the institutional and commercial systems work.  Art Club membership also comes with the benefit of waived fees to CUAC’s juried events like the Residency at the Ranch and Utah Ties.

Art Club comes with a basic CUAC membership.

Joining Art Club comes with a complimentary basic membership to CUAC. The official membership program will be rolled out early in 2016. Basic membership will include invitations to our VIP events and special opportunities to have access to art and artists.

Basic membership includes free entry to juried processes like Utah Ties and the Residency.
