The Arts Council produces its own programming and works in partnership with other nonprofits to connect creative content to our community.
FIRST & THEN
A series of extension events to connect Park City Institute Main Stage content to our community. FIRST & THEN invites locals to attend a specific Main Stage performance and then gather for a discussion about how the ideas presented, from storytelling in the post-truth era to criminal justice reform, relate to their work.
Creative Mornings is a worldwide network of creatives with over 160 chapters from Barcelona to Berlin. Each month members come together for breakfast and conversation. PCSC Arts has developed a partnership with the SLC Creative Mornings chapter to build connections between the Wasatch Front and Back creative communities. We launched with a satellite session in Park City in January and are planning more joint events over the course of the year.
SUMMIT ARTS SHOWCASE
An annual juried summer art showcase in Oakley to build support for local artists and cultivate collectors who live on the Eastern side of Summit County. The 2017 Summit Arts Showcase will happen on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June, 24. Mark your calendars!
COUNTY FAIR FINE ARTS EXHIBIT
A three day exhibit that gives locals the chance to share their paintings and photographs with the community as part of the County Fair in Coalville. This year the Fine Arts tent will be open from Thursday, August 8 through Saturday, August 10. In 2016, over 60 individuals submitted more than 100 pieces.
MONSTER DRAWING RALLY
A new partnership program between PCSC Arts and the Kimball Art Center. Building on a model developed by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, the first ever Park City Monster Drawing Rally is planned for June 1, 2017. It’s is a live drawing event and party that allows spectators to spy on the creative process, build relationships with local artists, and grow their art collections.
Each month on the second Wednesday, PCSC Arts curates a 15 minute segment on KPCW’s The Mountain Life hosted by Tim Henney and Lynn Ware Peek to share how arts and culture are a critical part of our mountain lifestyle. Tune in to FM 91.7, 88.1, or 91.9 at 9am on the second Wednesday to listen.
A semi-regular gathering for local arts and culture leaders to network and connect on a specific theme from what’s happening with the Arts Council to opportunities for cross-promotion and collaboration between organizations.
