Plans and Opportunities

Some Great News:

Urban Art Network is pleased to announce that beginning First Thursday August 6th from 3pm – 8pm, we will join the Pearl District Business Association's Healthy Streets Permit. Alongside local Pearl District restaurants and businesses we will have spaces for up to 5 UAN artists to display and sell within the PDBA street closure on NW 13th ave on Thursdays every week. The street closure set up will follow guidance provided by Public Health Department for the safest operating procedures during this public health crisis.

We are excited to offer this opportunity to Urban Art Network artists who wish to participate in 2020. This is a no cost opportunity. Preference will be given to artists who had pre-paid for 2020 season. There will be 8 separate weekly opportunities this summer, and we hope to be able to include all artists interested in participating.

If you would like to display your work within the street closure this summer please send an email including a high resolution image of your current work and your contact information HERE.

And some more Great News:

Urban Art Network was awarded a grant for the RACC which we will use to host a Virtual Art Walk! Our newly updated website has improved speed, accessibility and navigation, and it is ready to work harder for UAN Artists as a promotional and sales platform. Please check your profile to make sure your information is updated. Our Virtual Art Walk will feature online commerce and videos. This free event is a part of our commitment to our growing online presence designed to better serve Urban Art Network members with improved virtual opportunities.

Planning for the 2021 20th anniversary Street Gallery Festival will begin soon and we will keep you updated. We hope you will participate and share in all of our efforts as we move toward brighter days. Urban Art Network is using this time to build a stronger organization with added member benefits. We will shift our attention to building a stronger online platform with outreach and marketing that will serve a larger number of artists. We will focus our efforts on an inclusive, large-scale 20th anniversary celebration festival to take place in 2021.
