Every year, the Arts Program provides diverse visual art exhibitions with educational outreach lectures, book signings, symposiums and meet-the-artist receptions. These programs are among the most recognizable and signature events for patrons throughout Maryland.

By becoming a Friend of the Arts, you have the opportunity to network with artists, build and support collections, and socialize with friends while enjoying works by leading and emerging artists worldwide.

UMUC Arts Program Director Eric KeyMessage from Eric Key, Director, UMUC Arts Program

Personally, I can't imagine a world without art. I often say "there are many things I can live without but art isn’t one of them." Art has its aesthetic value, historical content and technical qualities. It soothes the soul, enriches the mind, and directs the future. The UMUC Arts Program is building a vibrant art collection for generations to come and we hope you will be a part of its development. Be a part of the conversation!
