A radically inclusive and diverse artistic community
This is the vision of Arts at UUCA. How can we explore the world through various artistic disciplines? How can we positively impact our community through arts offerings? We seek to explore these questions while grounding our programming in UU values and quarterly worship themes.

Located on the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta campus, Pulgram Gallery is the renewed iteration of the oldest art gallery in Atlanta. Founded in 1967, UUCA’s gallery space has a long history of supporting local artists and presenting thoughtful exhibitions. Pulgram Gallery aims to continue that legacy and commit to cultivating a radically inclusive and diverse artistic community. Art is a vehicle for engaging in authentic conversations; Pulgram Gallery is a home for courageous connection through fine art.
Helmed by Director of Music Donald Milton III, UUCA’s Performing Arts programs seek to present transformative music, dance, and theatre. From choir to small ensembles and much more, performance art at UUCA drives participants and audience members to deeply explore themes derived from our Sunday worship programs.
THE RUTH GOGEL ARTIST RESIDENCY
Named in honor of longtime UUCA member and curator, the Ruth Gogle Artist Residency offers selected artists 1-3 months of free studio space on the UUCA campus. Visiting artists will offer workshops and programs to engage with the UUCA community.
How can we grow beyond our individual experiences through the literary arts? Our literary arts program seeks to showcase storytelling as a vehicle for soulful connection. We are excited to hold our inaugural UUCA ARTS book club discussion this winter as we continue to grow our literary offerings!
