The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art has been an award-winning aesthetic force and community leader since its establishment in 1931. Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, UMOCA’s rich past has resulted in the creation of a cornerstone for contemporary culture in Utah, providing for artistic experimentation, community enrichment, and connection to the world as it occurs through our related experiences. UMOCA is a six-time recipient of funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and a two-time recipient of the Art Works Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts
Open to all, the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art is Utah’s only museum solely devoted to contemporary arts and culture. Through our exhibitions and programs, we engage with social issues, provide a platform for dialogue, and create a nurturing space for artists to work and develop, as we advance and support the community of contemporary art in Utah.
