Who We Are:
The Art Haus SLC was started by three Latina women who are very passionate about bringing contemporary arts experiences to the community in Salt Lake City. Each of us has a strong connection to this city and to its people. We specifically chose Salt Lake City because we knew members of this community would be excited by opportunities to participate in progressive arts experiences. We are delighted to share our talents, vision and passion for arts education with you.
What We’re About:
The Art Haus SLC is dedicated to connecting members of the Salt Lake community with contemporary arts in multiple disciplines by creating opportunities for them to engage in and discover new artistic endeavors through exhibitions, performances and other digital programming. Our goal is to create an environment that promotes supportive dialogue about the arts and their meaning. We hope to share the process and products of artistic creation through our programs and through the use of new technologies to enhance arts education.
Why We Are Awesome!:
Salt Lake City is a cultural hub and has a burgeoning contemporary arts scene. A number of arts organizations bring to the city art exhibitions, dance, theater, and opportunities for artists, young and old. However, The Art Haus SLC is different in that we are a multidisciplinary arts organization that will bring in global arts experiences to the community through traditional programming (exhibitions, performances, workshops, etc.) and through new media technologies that will enhance the arts education experience. We want to bring the world to Salt Lake and have the world see us as makers of art. But to do this we will need your help!!
