A Publik Gathering Spot

Salt Lake Magazine – April 16, 2014

I’ve bemoaned the lack of coffee shops in Park City for years, but it seems that java aficionados are finally responding to the shortage of flavorful brews. In the past two months alone, three cafes have sprung up, giving a jolt to the underdeveloped coffeehouse community.

Where Publik Coffee Roasters differs is in its daily mantra: “Quality over quantity, community over corporate, planet over profit”—and above all, flavorful, small-batch coffee. Based on that, you could call them a collective brew of javaphiles, artists and scientists. Quite fitting, then, that a ... (read more)

Scott Iwasaki, The Park Record – March 11, 2014

In order for the Kimball Art Center to host the Wasatch Back Student Art Show from April 12 to May 25, it needs artwork. So, Jenny Diersen, the KAC's education director is hoping young artists from Summit and Wasatch Counties are already thinking about or creating works for submission.

The theme for this year is "What Dreams Are Made Of."

"Students can start dropping off paintings, ceramics, sculptures and other works at the Kimball Art Center's front desk on Thursday, April 3," Diersen said during an interview with The Park Record. "The deadline is Monday, April 7, so that gives them a nice weekend to stop by."

On April 8, Diersen and her staff will start installing the works in the KAC's three galleries.

"We usually receive hundreds of works and it does take us all week to install them, so it's important that students don't miss the deadline," she ... (read more)
