Let There Be Lights!

lighting-diffWe are excited to have new high-efficiency LED lighting for the art gallery in The UC! They were recently installed by Roman Electric Co. and have dramatically improved the quality of light in the Underground Collaborative.

The various colors, textures and styles in the art gallery really pop! The LED lighting looks great in part because it emits a wider light spectrum than the old power-hungry fluorescent lighting did. It’s now closer to the light spectrum the sun emits on a beautiful day!

Join us on Saturday, Sept. 26th for an Art Gallery show from 6-9pm and the closing weekend of The Lizard King in the Arcade Theatre!


Special thanks to Sue Berce, Allan Willis from Roman Electric, and Kiva Zip for helping us raise the funding!


The UC is Getting Brighter!

UC Gallery Artists

One of the great features of The Underground Collaborative is all the incredible art in the Gallery! With the help of Kiva Zip and Roman Electric, The UC is upgrading the lighting in all the common areas. This will not only make the space brighter, but the art on the walls will really pop!

The lighting upgrade at The UC will affect all the activities that take place on a daily basis.  Making all the rehearsals, dance classes, business meetings and live performances brighter and better!Kiva Zip
