Description
The Mission of the Art Association is to provide opportunities to enjoy, educate, participate and inspire through the arts. We have art classes, annual art shows, annual photography shows, annual poetry open microphone nights, annual Christmas concerts as well as programming in most areas in art: basketmaking, fabric, childrens' programming, ethnic programming, ladies' programming, gourmet tasting events, drama school for school age children, ending with an annual holiday gift gallery. We are funded by membership monies, donations, bequests, grants, sponsorships, as well as annual giving by individuals and corporate sponsors. We also share the arts in area schools making as many media of artworks come alive to grade school children as possible.
Background
The AARC started in 1954 as a group of women artists gathering together to host an art show. From those humble beginnings, the AARC has become a full-spectrum arts agency serving thousands of citizens wtih a variety of events throughout the year. We are housed in an historic railroad depot that we call the Arts Depot. Preserving the Union City Arts Depot has acheived the AARC recognition on the National Register of Historic Places. Our restoration was a state award for best renovation project of the Department of Natural Resources' Division of Historic Preservation.
