Uncommon Common Art

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. Through this project we hope to engage and educate about art, environment, physical activity, and our rural community.

Good for the community and the soul, this project takes people to places of beauty literally and figuratively.  It allows people to explore their own “backyard” with a sense of wonder and fun.

UCA is a seasonal project that is launched in mid June and ends in mid October.  In addition to the installations there are ancillary activities; artist talks, summer camp, art workshops, and educational programming in the area schools.
