UMOCA 2015 Annual Gala Call for Artists

Year after year, the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art’s Annual Gala emerges as the most exceptional summer kick-off party in Salt Lake City. The gala not only brings 300 art enthusiasts together, it also serves as UMOCA’s biggest fundraiser of the year. These funds make UMOCA’s remarkable exhibitions like Bikuben and award-winning educational programming such as the Artist-in-Residence Program and the UMOCA Art Truck possible.

With their ticket purchase, Annual Gala guests receive dinner, dancing and the ability to participate in our Live, Silent, and Art Auctions. UMOCA is currently seeking submissions for the annual 12×12 Art Auction. The Art Auction is an effective place to get exposure among Utah’s art collectors. For the second year the works will receive additional exposure as an official UMOCA exhibition with a reception and an opening date of May 22, 2015.
