Business Membership

UMPQUA VALLEY ARTS

                               

UVAA’s Business Membership is based on the reality that UVAA and the business community are Positively Connected to each other. A viable economy depends on strong businesses and strong arts and cultural institutions.


Established Programs Continue to Thrive

Filling a major void in the elementary school curriculum, UVAA provides hands-on arts learning experiences for 7,500 K-5 students. Our bi-annual Douglas County Student Art Show attracts 450 works by children from Glide to Reedsport. Over 30 gallery exhibits demonstrate the breadth and depth of artistic excellence throughout the Umpqua Valley. The 46th Summer Arts Festival re-affirms UVAA’s commitment to celebrate the talent that surrounds us, with a 10% increase in attendance.

UVAA Programs Respond to Community Needs

An after-school program for teens is launched, in collaboration with the YMCA, and arts education is brought to the River Rock school at the Douglas County Corrections Facility. Music For the Arts adds a hugely successful Summer Jazz Barbecue.

The Beautiful Historic Building Flourishes

Fabulous volunteers restore the building’s pillars to their original beauty. Corridor Gallery exhibits are greatly enhanced with the installation of track lighting. The Paul Smith typewriter exhibit includes new works beautifully re-framed.

UVAA’s Infrastructure is Stronger than Ever

A robust revised strategic plan invigorates the organization. Our first-ever marketing plan positions us to increase awareness of the pivotal role UVAA plays in the every-day lives of people in Douglas County.
