Become a sponsor and partner with Umpqua Valley Arts to serve our community through arts and cultural events and programming all year long! UVA welcomes individuals and businesses to become supporters of the arts through a long-term partnership. UVA believes that we are all Connected — and that a viable economy depends upon the unity of individuals, our city, our businesses and our arts and cultural institutions, to support the health of our communities.

Established Programs Continue to Thrive

Filling a major void in the elementary school curriculum, UVA 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. This year’s Summer Arts Festival re-affirms UVA’s commitment to celebrate the talent that surrounds us, with a 10% increase in attendance.

UVA 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.

UVA’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 UVA plays in the every-day lives of people in Douglas County.
