Artist Members at The CU

The Cedars Union is an artist incubator community that offers year-round creative programming and artist-only workshops for increasing career and business knowledge and skills. All artists will play an integral part in helping mold the future of The CU.

The Cedars Union will be offering artists who do not need micro-studio rental space the option to become a non-studio member, which provides access to The CU tools and resources. More information on Artist memberships coming soon.
