CODA Awards / Collaboration of the Year winner!

Congrats to the Collaboration of the Year winner, “The Underwater Museum of Art (UMA)” submitted by Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (NW Florida)”!

North America’s first underwater permanent sculpture exhibit was created by The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) in partnership with South Walton Artificial Reef Association (SWARA) and with support from Visit South Walton, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Alys Foundation, and Visit Florida. The Underwater Museum of Art (UMA) joined two of Walton County, Florida’s most beloved attractions – the Arts and the Gulf of Mexico.

The #UMA is a component of the CAA’s Art In Public Spaces Program and augments SWARA’s mission of creating marine habitat and expanding fishery populations while providing enhanced creative, cultural, economic and educational opportunities for the benefit, education and enjoyment of residents, students and visitors in Walton County.
