What is a Brolly?
The term “brolly” is British slang for umbrella, an appropriate name for an organization that has strived for inclusiveness since its inception.
Brolly Arts was founded in 1995 in Salt Lake City, Utah, to fill a niche in a burgeoning arts community.
Director and founder Amy McDonald recognized a need for an organization that would support and enhance existing arts organizations and independent artists by creating forums for collaboration and experimentation.
Brolly Arts has, from its inception, been an agent of change and community development through the arts for Salt Lake City. Every project undertaken has moved the arts community to work together and has creatively addressed a number of issues, both local and global. – Nancy Boskoff, Executive Director, Salt Lake City Arts Council
