Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA)

Through compelling exhibitions, events, community programs, and youth development, we actively challenge both artists and audiences to new levels of dialogue, creative pursuit, reflection, and illumination. UICA initiates conversation in response to visual art, music, film, literature, dance, and performance art featuring regional, national, and international artists. UICA presents new gallery exhibitions of contemporary artwork from regional, national and international artists throughout the year. UICA also hosts a range of events including docent-led tours, concerts, performance art, short film series, artist receptions, and gallery talks. UICA’s movie theater shows first-run independent cinema, international films, and documentaries six days a week.
