Kimball Art Center

Park City, Utah – March 3, 2014

Kimball Art Center today unveiled renderings of its proposed design plans that include building renovations and a 15,000 square-foot expansion of the center’s current Main Street location, which will include over 9,000 square feet of museum/exhibition space, large social areas, increased administrative spaces, a 4,000 square-foot Children’s Interactive Discovery Center, a 3,000 square-foot education studio, and expanded support areas. This expansion will double Kimball Art Center’s space to 30,000 square feet.

The proposed design increases the space for museum and art exhibitions and creates additional public meeting space, administrative offices, socials areas, and extra storage rooms. If the proposed plans are approved, Kimball Art Center anticipates starting construction in 2015.

In addition to the Main Street expansion, Kimball Art Center also plans on renting or purchasing a second campus that will create even more opportunities for art appreciation and education in the community. Plans for the second site – which are still in beginning stages – will primarily house education studios and programs, and will allow Kimball Art Center to proved a greater range and frequency of classes, more parking, and easier accessibility for student drop offs.

The plans were designed by the world renowned Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), an award-winning, international architectural firm whose founder was named The Wall Street Journal’s Innovator of the Year for architecture in 2011. BIG has partnered with Park City’s Elliott Work Group who will be the local architect firm for this project.
