The Union is proud to present the very first performance by our Performing Arts Collective (PAC).
In the darkest moment of her life, Erica is overtaken by a deluge of memories of her life with her mother, Eva. Written by the award-winning actor, playwright, and director Carla Stillwell, The Divine Order of Becoming portrays the relationship between a mother and daughter as it unfolds with joy, angst, fear, and finally forgiveness, as Erica realizes her mother's strength and humanity.
Running January 20th - February 5th
Catch a preview and meet the playwright, Carla, at our grand opening event on January 14th from 11AM to 4PM.
Alexandria Smith explores the transformative girlhood experiences that shape the women we become as she illuminates the complexities of Black identity.
Smith is the first recipient of Wanda D. Ewing Commission, a new Union initiative that supports the production and presentation of new work by a woman artist of the African diaspora.
Exhibition runs from January 14th through March 25th. Admission is free and open to the public

We’ve spent the past 2 ½ years building a spectacular new home for The Union of Contemporary Art in the completely renovated, historic Blue Lion — and we can’t wait to share the end result with you! Bring your family and friends out to North 24th and Lake Streets for a day-long celebration of the arts — the afternoon will be filled with performances, artist demos, youth activities, tours and opportunities to meet our new team members and Fellows.
