Free and open to all, UMOCA is Utah’s only museum devoted to contemporary arts and culture. Through our cutting-edge program, we engage with social issues, provide a platform for dialogue and a nurturing space for artists to work and develop.
Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, the UMOCA has been an award-winning aesthetic force and community leader since it was established in 1931. UMOCA’s mission is to advance and elevate the community of contemporary arts and culture, establishing Utah as a leading voice for innovation, experimentation and dialogue surrounding the issues of our time. UMOCA strives to be a place where all points of view, experiences, and ages feel welcome to explore what contemporary artistic expression means both to the individual and their community.
UMOCA is a five-time recipient of funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation and is a two-time recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Art Works grant award.
UMOCA is a 501c3 institution that is supported by public, foundation, and corporate gifts. Your donation in any amount is greatly appreciated. Admission is a suggested $5 donation.
