November 7, 2014 - February 5, 2015
Main Gallery

Exhibit Overview

Christo and Jeanne-Claude met in Paris in 1958, marking the beginning of the most extraordinary artistic partnership of our time. Today they are most well-known for their monumental public installations in which they wrap buildings, erect curtains, outline islands, and “plant” umbrellas in the developed and undeveloped landscape. The Kimball Art Center is proud to bring the largest U.S. collection of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s original drawings, sculptures, collages, and photographs to Park City.

Each A.R.T.S. school tour for the Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection will include a presentation about their work followed by an art project. Students grade K-2 will build a landscape in modeling clay, and students grade 3+ will complete a creative “wrapping” project to go along with the exhibit.

The Kimball Art Center is able to provide the free A.R.T.S. School Tour Program for the Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection to public, private, charter, home schools and youth organizations thanks to underwriting by Vail Resorts, the R. Harold Burton foundation, and Edward Lifesciences, with additional support from the Larry and Judy Brownstein, Swartz Foundation, Mountain Living, George S. & Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation, Summit County RAP Tax, and the Utah Division of Arts & Museums.

Exhibit Overview

Over the past four summers, the Kimball Art Center hosted an artist-in-residence program called RELEVANT, that brought together a select group of talented and dedicated undergraduate and graduate level art students from across the country to be mentored by nationally recognized professional artists. During their 8-days with the mentors, student artists would not only work on an exhibition piece, but also would attend workshops and round-table discussions with industry professionals designed to provide the students with a greater understanding of some of the skills necessary to become successful, full-time career artists. To showcase the success of the graduate artists, the Kimball will showcase the work of past RELEVANT artists and mentors from the classes of 2010 through 2013 in our Main Gallery.

Each A.R.T.S tour for the RELEVANT exhibit will include a free 45 minute guided tour as well as a 45 minute art project that can be completed at the Kimball Art Center or in schools. In addition supplemental K – 12 lesson plans integrating the arts with core subjects are available online.

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)

Wasatch Back Student Art Show: What Dreams are Made Of

April 12 – May 25, 2014
Main, Garage and Badami Galleries

The Kimball Art Center offers many educational programs to students across the State, allowing access to the visual arts for over 11,000 Utah youth. Our free A.R.T.S School Tour Program, which pairs the Main Gallery exhibitions with core curriculum subjects, helps students experience and learn about the arts. New this year, the EVA (Elementary Visual Arts) program, in partnership with Park City Education Foundation, has allowed Park City Public Elementary Schools to experience consistent visual arts instruction. In addition, the work of the Young Artists’ Academy, which is comprised of 15 aspiring teen artists, is featured in the Badami Gallery. The Kimball Art Center also offers more than 300 art classes each year to Families, Tots, Kids, Tweens & Teens and Adults.

Students normally gaze at the work of famous artists like Matisse, Maynard Dixon, or Lego© Brick Artist, Nathan Sawaya, and dream of their chance to display their creations. Now proudly showing in the galleries are the dreams, aspirations and hopes of our local youth. The Kimball Art Center is pleased to present the annual Wasatch Back Student Art Show featuring work by student artists in Summit and Wasatch County Schools, grades K – 12. The show incorporates the theme, What Dreams Are Made Of. Each September the Kimball Art Center announces the theme for the year and students have time to create unique pieces of 2 and 3 dimensional art. As you look at this incredible display, remember, as Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” When you leave, remember to follow your dreams and please vote for next year’s theme at our front desk.
