Union Project offers over 120 arts programs and events that provide arts experiences and education for people of all ages and skill levels, professional development to emerging artists, and use the arts in creative ways to engage all people. When we combine arts and community, people are empowered to safely express their individuality and learn about their differences, share and learn new skills, create dialogue around issues of justice, and build social capital and community wealth.

Stained Glass Restoration

Union Project was founded on the belief that a restored building can bring people together and restore a community. We’ve come a long way since 2001, and though our work no longer focuses solely on a historic renovation, you can read about how community members restored 155 historic stained glass windows!
