Arts Underground is a partnership between the Yukon Art Society, Friends of the Yukon Archives Society, Yukon Arts Centre, and MacBride Museum of Yukon History. The space and utilities for Arts Underground are generously donated by the Hougen Group of Companies.
The Yukon Art Society (YAS) was founded in April of 1970. Not only is it the oldest visual arts organization in the Yukon, but with a membership of around 150 members, it is the largest. The size and longevity of YAS can be explained in part by our inclusiveness policy. Any artist, at any stage of development, working in any medium, is welcome to become a member of YAS.
Our Mandate: To foster the creative and professional development of Yukon visual artists at all levels through exhibitions, education, networking and complementary activities with wide community appeal.
