After a significant gift from the Dr. Ezekiel R. & Edna Wattis Dumke Foundation, we are thrilled to be moving forward with our flagship exhibition space and contemporary art center in the historic Monarch building at 455 25th Street in Ogden. Designs have been approved and construction is scheduled to begin this summer!
This multi-use space will serve as a creative influence for our community as we draw artists from all over the world for exhibitions and interactive programming. Our hope is to build a nationally recognized art center that will engage our local artists with the wider contemporary art world.
The Arts Garage is our main gallery that will be filled with flexible walls for use as a gallery that is ever-changing. The exhibit space is designed to make use of all the space– 20 vertical feet and reinforced sheer walls mean that we can hang, cantilever and suspend artwork in all spaces and from all angles of the exhibit space
Next to the main gallery and adjacent to the information booth will be the VR/ AR space that will provide patrons with immersive art experiences created with light, sound, color, experience, and of course, virtual and augmented reality.
Follow the stairs up to the mezzanine to another gallery space that offers an addition to our main gallery exhibitions and/or the ability to host multiple exhibitions at the same time.
Adjacent to the 2nd floor gallery, you will find two artist lofts that will be utilized for OCA’s Artist-in-Residence program.
