The group’s dancers will present Look Up Nashville!, which takes place down the side of the 28-story UBS Tower (315 Deaderick St.). This unique “sneak peek” of BANDALOOP takes place Monday at 1 p.m. precisely. Admission is free and the public is invited to enjoy this 15-minute site-responsive experience.
This is an inaugural sponsorship for the new 501c3, non-profit organization whose mission is to bring the innovative and cutting-edge arts to Nashville. UBS has been a fixture in the Nashville community since 2000 and is known internationally for their support of the arts.
UBS has a long, proud history of supporting contemporary art through various sponsorships and global partnerships, as well as through its own distinguished art collection and the UBS Arts Forum. Most recently, UBS became the global Lead Partner of Art Basel, sponsoring all three shows in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong. Additionally, in 2012 UBS launched the Guggenheim UBS MAP project – a global collaboration with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation that engages with artists, institutions and the public in Southeast Asia, Latin America and North Africa/Middle East.
“At UBS, we believe that contemporary art reflects and influences trends in society,” says Jerry Johnson, managing director of UBS’s Tennessee Complex. “We are proud to partner with OZ Arts, a Nashville institution that shares that passion for contemporary art with us – and with many of our clients. We are excited to host BANDALOOP here in Music City and are happy to sponsor Look Up Nashville.”
“The support of companies like UBS is very important to nonprofits like OZ,” says Tim Ozgener, co-founder and CEO of OZ. “It is impressive when businesses step up to support the arts. Such corporate support helps Nashville’s nonprofits carry out their important community missions. Here at OZ, that means our sponsors are helping us to continue to bring high-caliber contemporary art to Nashville. We are grateful to UBS.”
