Join the Art Collective!

Are you a painter, printmaker, photographer, sculptor, woodworker or artist working in other media?  Do you want to exhibit your artwork?  Do you want to help support the Art in the Atrium exhibitions?

The mission of First U’s Art Collective is to inspire the community by producing exhibitions which encourage us to interact with artists’ diverse viewpoints of the world and motivate us to see, think and feel on a deeper emotional and spiritual level. The Art Collective is a program of First U’s Community Life and Heritage ministry.

Artists who want to exhibit and friends who want to help support the cost of the “Art in the Atrium” exhibitions can join the Art Collective by completing the membership form and paying annual dues of $10.  To complete the form, click here:
