The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art’s long-term artist-in-residence program is designed expressly to meet the needs of artists living and working in Utah.

UMOCA supports its residents by offering studio space within the museum, exclusive workshops with national artists and art professionals, and career-building opportunities. At the end of their residencies, artists have the opportunity to showcase the culmination of their work in a museum setting through a gallery dedicated to UMOCA’s artists-in-residence, the AIR Space.



Over the next year, UMOCA will exhibit the work of our current group of artist-in-residence at a new pop-up gallery located at Historic Trolley Square.

UMOCA at Trolley Gallery Hours:
