Description & Services
Information  
 
Uncommon Common Art (UCA) is a community wide art exhibit that highlights two of Kings County‚Äôs greatest assets - the natural beauty of the Minas Basin Valley and the abundance of creative people who live in the area. 
 
This innovative seasonal project brings visual art out of institutions and galleries and shares it directly with the community, making it accessible to everyone. UCA was born out of a simple observation of the sometimes subtle and beautiful impact that humans have on nature. While we are inundated with news and information about mankind's negative impact on our natural surroundings, this project promotes and recognizes our creative and beautiful touches in nature. 
 
Through this project we hope to engage and educate about art, environment, physical activity, and our rural community. In addition we seek to promote, support, and bring together artists and their work. 
 
In addition to the installations we hold a variety of other activities including artist workshops, artist talks, school programs, and summer camps.
