A small town in Utah is considering a concept for a community gallery that would showcase the artwork of locals and the city, with the help of local and national artists.article”The idea is to showcase local art through a gallery where artists from around the country can show their work to the public,” said Jeff Langer, director of the local government arts and culture committee, in a statement.
“The idea of an art center is to connect artists, curators, and galleries, allowing for more interaction with each other and a sense of community.”
Langer said he has not yet received any bids, but hopes to find one by mid-December.
“We are looking for artists from across the country and international,” he said.
“They’re all interested in bringing their talents to this area.”
Langer added that the gallery will be located in a community park in Salt Lake City and that the goal is to open by the end of the year.
The gallery would have four permanent locations.
One is at a location in the city of Provo, Utah, which will be used for programming, but also for public art and events.
The other three locations are in the deserts of the western United States, including a location at a desert resort called the Salt Lake Desert and a location near the Arizona desert in Baja California.
