The Cedars Union annex will open early 2018!

The Cedars Union was established as a non-profit whose mission is to provide studios, programs, and tools for creatives, foster a collaborative and supportive artist community, and advance the arts in North Texas. The CU Annex will fulfill the mission by offering year-round creative programming and artist-only workshops to develop business knowledge and skills. All Annex artists will play a part in helping mold the future of The CU while taking their practice to the next level.
