Urban Arts Gallery is re-opening May 15th

Utah Arts Alliance

The Urban Arts Gallery is excited to be re-opening this Friday, May 15th! We will be resuming our normal business hours (Tuesday through Sunday 12-9pm, closed Mondays).

We hope that our opening will be a healthy step towards normalcy for our community, and will provide much needed support for local artists who have been affected by the pandemic.

However, we recognize that the battle with COVID-19 is far from over, and we’re determined to respond to the crisis with thoughtful care. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our staff and customers; as such, we’ll be implementing some new policies and procedures in our facility:

  1. Staff and customers must wear masks while in the Urban Arts Gallery.

We’ll have Utah Arts Alliance face masks available for sale for any customers who don’t have their own mask.

  1. Gallery staff may limit entry at any time.

Our space is large, so most of the time it should be easy to respect 6 feet of social distancing while in the gallery. However, if this becomes a concern, customers may be asked to wait outside until others exit.

  1. Staff members may enact further precautionary policies if it becomes necessary.

The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve and we continue to learn better ways to ensure our health and safety. The gallery staff may add to or amend our list of policies as we see fit.
