THE CUCC ARTIST'S COLLECTIVE

The newly formed CUCC Artist's Collective works with our congregation and surrounding organizations to support local artists and provide a venue to display art within our community. We are lucky to have many pieces of art on our campus that were created by such influential artists as Millard Sheets and Burt Johnson.
