Umpqua Valley Arts Association

Since 1979 UVAA has served Douglas County through its mission to “Create and foster a climate that supports arts appreciation, participation and education.” UVAA’s k-12 education programs provide 18,000 individual hands-on art experiences annually. Located in an historic landmark (built in 1917 as a Soldiers’ Hospital) , its five galleries rotate exhibits every 2 months. UVAA hosts an annual Summer Arts Festival which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2018.
