UMOCA Annual Gala: 1931 @ The Fallout
Jun 4 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm
UMOCA Annual Gala: 1931 @ The Fallout | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

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.
