Utah Climate Week Gallery Showcase 2018
Utah Climate Week (October 1-7) was created by the Utah Climate Action Network as a time designated to inspire and support conversation about the climate change issues in Utah. Organizations throughout the state seek to get community involvement in this initiative through special events such as film screenings, speaker panels, and other campaigns aiming to encourage public awareness and advocacy for climate change.
The Park City Summit County Arts Council has joined with art galleries throughout Park City to activate the arts and raise awareness of Utah Climate Week. The Utah Climate Week Gallery Showcase was a pilot project in 2017, and was very successful. We had 7 galleries participate in the initiative last year. This year, the program has grown to represent 10 galleries on Main Street and beyond displaying environmentally themed artwork in their windows. Each piece highlights the artist's depiction of themes relating to sustainability and environmental issues.
The Utah Climate Week Gallery Showcase starts this Friday during the September Gallery Stroll, and the pieces can be viewed in person in the associated gallery windows or other dedicated spaces for the duration of Climate Week, or via our virtual gallery at www.pcscarts.org/utah-climate-week-2018/.
Participating galleries include Gallery Mar, J Go Gallery, Kimball Art Center, Julie Nester Gallery, Terzian Gallery, Meyer Gallery, Bret Webster Images Gallery, Susan Swartz Studios, Trove Gallery, and DB Fine Art.
Head to the Last Friday Gallery Stroll this Friday, September 28th from 6-9pm and check out the featured work. Can’t make it? The work will be up through the duration of Utah Climate Week (October 1-7th).
