  • In addition, the main UUCF Sanctuary Building is open weekdays 9 a.m.-4 p.m. During those hours, ARTspeaks is open, but not monitored.
  • There is consistent traffic to the space every day and evening by the congregation, the home-schooling program on Wednesdays and meetings held by external groups.
  • Each September, we hold a monthly public reception for ARTspeaks.
