About Us

-No cost exhibitions at local businesses through the UHAA Art Partnering program which promotes participating artists and businesses

-free art workshops to 2500 children and families per year through a traveling art booth

-free, gardening seeds with illustrationed planting guides, which can be found in all  ARTcovz® dispensers as well as some events.
