Uncommon Common Art (UCA) is a community wide art exhibit that highlights two of Kings County’s 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. The installations in this project are gifts from the artists to the observers of nature to find, explore, talk about, and share.
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. Good for the community and the soul, this project takes people to places of beauty literally and figuratively.
UCA is a seasonal project that is launched in mid June and ends in mid October. In addition to the installations there are workshops for adults and families. Check our website in April for workshop updates and sign up.
