ACME (Art. Community. Museum. Education.) is a three-part outreach initiative dedicated to rethinking the public role of museums. ACME Lab, ACME Sessions, and ACME Scholars are designed to transform how the UMFA connects with, engages, and learns from our community.

Bimonthly ACME Sessions bring together Salt Lake City's most creative, inventive, and cross-disciplinary minds—artists, educators, museum professionals, university faculty and students, engineers, scientists, technologists, activists, researchers, and others.  ACME Lab is a physical space for art experimentation with exhibitions highlighting diverse artists and voices. 

Check back often for information on current ACME events.
