This program sponsors local artists conducting informative presentations and hands-on workshops throughout our community. The goal is to develop and sustain the public’s awareness and interest in the arts, cultivating a true appreciation for all forms of human expression. Art UP Close makes our community a dynamic place to live, work, and visit; in other words, it makes us Uniquely Urbandale!
Each year, Art UP Close offers two four-month paid sponsorships to visual, literary, performing, and mixed media artists. Artists eager to use their talent to nurture and grow the community’s artistic spirit are invited to apply.
