Name of Committee: Artful Living
Purpose of Committee: To provide an opportunity for members and friends of UUCL to express themselves through the arts to the congregation and to the community at large.

Current Committee Charge: The purpose of the Artful Living Committee is to promote the arts within UUCL and the greater community. We will encourage and support opportunities for UUCL members and friends to engage in the visual, literary, musical and dramatic arts.
