The Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts builds creative community by fostering new forms of expression, promoting collaboration, and providing genuine experiences with contemporary art. UICA features exhibitions of work by regional, national, and international artists throughout the year. UICA also hosts a range of events, concerts, performance art, receptions, gallery talks, an annual Holiday Artists’ Market, and programs that nurture our creative community. UICA’s 195-seat film theater shows independent cinema, foreign films, and documentaries 6 days a week. Through compelling exhibitions, events, community programs, and youth development, we challenge artists and audiences to new levels of dialogue, creative pursuit, reflection, and illumination. UICA initiates conversation in response to visual art, music, film, literature, dance, and performance art by regional, national and international artists.

Artist & Connection Information

SENSE is UICA’s ArtPrize Seven exhibition. This year, UICA will showcase six site-responsive projects, in six distinct locations in UICA’s exhibition space. SENSE will engage that which is at the root of all experience, the things that make us who we are, that allow us to experience and learn from the world around us: sight, smell, hearing, taste, touch, and perhaps a sixth sense: intuition. UICA’s ArtPrize 2015 hours (September 23 - October 11): Mondays: 5pm - 8pm Tuesdays - Saturdays: 12pm - 9pm Sundays: 12pm - 6pm
