This is the Place @ Rio Gallery

This exhibition represents a group of visual artists as they consider this place so many call home. Just as we shape and build the landscape around us, the landscape has a remarkable effect on us, shaping and building culture. Utah was “the place” for many indigenous peoples prior to the arrival of the Mormon pioneers. More recently, the numbers of people who call Utah “home” have expanded to include the pioneers and their several generations of descendants, as well as contemporary migrants to the Wasatch Front. This exhibition explores the diversity and value of the community through artists, community participation and historical photographs. M-F 8-5. Gallery Stroll Opening August 16, 6-9pm
