ARTSblock Naming Opportunities

The UCR ARTSblock is made up of the Sweeney Art Gallery, the UCR/California Museum of Photography and the Culver Center of the Arts. This project is a priority for both the campus and the community, and is a part of the revitalization of historic downtown Riverside.

The campus, in collaboration with the city of Riverside and other partners, is building the foundation for an expanded program of arts and culture that benefits the University and the southern California community.

There are many naming opportunities for the Culver Center, the UCR/California Museum of Photography and even the overall ARTSblock facility itself.
