Join the National Ability Center in celebrating their 30th anniversary at the annual Barn Party. The National Ability Center’s Equestrian program has helped countless numbers of participants and their families for more than 28 of the 30 years the center has been open.

This event is full of activities the entire family can enjoy, including delicious food, whiskey saloon, line dancing, kids’ activities, riding demonstrations and a silent auction.

Looking back on a time of tempestuous change and the want for an international taste of creative aptitude, 1931 will celebrate the ambitious beginnings and birth year of one of Salt Lake City’s most precious and enduring gems.
The 1930s were a turbulent time. Unemployment doubled, and serious drought devastated the land and drove farmers from their fields. Yet from this pressure, sparkling gems began to form the dust. The Empire State Building was constructed, the Whitney Museum opened in Manhattan, the Works Progress Administration created national treasures, and the Art Barn was born.
Since its Art Barn beginnings to becoming the Salt Lake Art Center and now, as the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, artists and appreciators have been drawn together to form the very heart and moxie of Salt Lake City’s creative essence.
Celebrate the times and history of Utah’s art culture dolled up in your most ritzy contemporary style.
Arts in the Parks is a collaborative program between the WSU Telitha E. Lindquist College of Arts and Humanities, the Jerry & Vickie Moyes College of Education, the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences, the College of Science, and the Ogden City School District free summer lunch program. Modeled after the popular Science in the Parks program, Arts in the Parks runs for 6 weeks each summer, spending 1 week at each of the following Ogden City Parks: Lorin Farr Park, Liberty Park, Monroe Park, Jaycee Park, Mt. Ogden Park and West Ogden Park. The program takes place Monday – Friday from 12noon to 1pm, is geared toward 3-12 year old children, and is free and open to all who wish to participate. Each day of the week is dedicated to a different visual or performing arts theme, and kids are given an opportunity to engage in hands on activities and take home the projects they make. The program is made possible through generous support from the Weber County RAMP tax initiative, the Val A. Browning Charitable Foundation, the Alan E. and Jeanne N. Hall Endowment for Community Outreach, and the Utah Families Foundation. To learn more about the program contact Co-Directors Holly Jarvis (firstname.lastname@example.org / 801-626-7689) or Dr. Kathryn Mackay (email@example.com / 801-626-6782.
