About: The West Valley Arts and Cultural Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit arts organization that works in conjunction with the West Valley City Division of Arts and Culture to provide a variety of arts programming for residents of West Valley City and the Wasatch Front. West Valley Arts’ mission is to create opportunities to learn, experience and celebrate art, culture and community.
Since 2004, West Valley Arts has supported West Valley's rich history of public art, festivals, concerts, cultural programming, and theatre. We operate the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, a 10,000 sq. ft. community event center showing rotating art exhibits, community concerts, Greek theatre, festivals, and more. At the UCCC, we pride ourselves on being the premier location for all cultures in Salt Lake County to celebrate their events.
With a long history of community theater programming at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, West Valley City decided to launch a professional theater program at the West Valley Performing Arts Center in 2019. Shows are produced using local professional talent as well as the Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival.
