ALONE/TOGETHER is a new online series of performative programs associated with the exhibition Labor: Motherhood & Art in 2020 at the University Art Museum (UAM).

ALONE/TOGETHER is a curated series of online Saturday programs created by the UAM in collaboration with artists and programming partners from Labor: Motherhood & Art in 2020 (Labor). The series will be fully online, utilizing an array of social media and online apps the global community is now becoming even more familiar with in this new world of social distancing. 

Many of these projects have developed from existing programs that were slated to take place in the museum exhibition, including live performances, pre-recorded video, and experimental community programs led by artists in our community. Plans will continue to evolve as our global situation does. Please read all about the programming here. 


Mama Create-Ups (Rescheduled!)
The UAM is excited to announce the transition of some of our previously scheduled Mama Create-Ups to a new online format, through the ALONE/TOGETHER programming. The Mama Create-Ups series provides informational talks by local specialists on themes, such as lactation, FMLA, and carving out time for your passions, offering resources for mothers within the local community, as well as our expanded digital community. All events will take place on Saturdays at 1PM MST using the digital platform Zoom, and will last approximately one hour. In connection with each of the digital Mama Create-Up events, the UAM will present a uniquely designed OutsmART children’s art workshop created by a local artist mom. The UAM’s OutsmART children’s workshops mission is to expose children in the southwest region to art through exploration and play. These events are designed to be done around the house, with common art supplies, and can be completed by children during the Mama Create-Up event. This art workshop’s goal is intended to provide the mother with some alone time during the Mama Create-Up event, but the art projects can be completed at any time! The UAM will produce a limited amount of kits for each project that local families will be able to pick up for those unable to access these supplies. The UAM will prioritize safety procedures both in preparing these kits as well as their distribution, sanitizing each product and providing an enclosed kit that will be prepared at least 72 hours in advance and kept without handling until their distribution. More specific information about kit pick-ups and each event will be provided through the UAM’s website and newsletter (sign up here). *Babies and small children welcome with their parents at all online events!
