In 2002, Salt Lake City presented the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, hosting 2,500 Olympian athletes from across the globe. Though many associate the Olympics with athletic achievement, the arts have played an integral role since the ancient Olympic Games. The 2002 Winter Cultural Olympiad Arts Festival was founded to celebrate the accomplishments of Utah's greatest artists. In conjunction with the 2002 Arts Festival, the Springville Museum of Art hosted an exhibition celebrating 150 years of Utah's art history. The featured artworks were carefully chosen by a team of art experts, using rigorous criteria to ensure diverse representation and superior quality. The final exhibition of over 300 works presented one of the most significant surveys of Utah's art history ever compiled. As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Salt Lake City Olympics, we want to once again celebrate the achievements of Utah's many artists, both living and deceased. This exhibition contains a small selection of the artworks originally displayed in 2002.

RE-imagine immersive art at Dreamscapes, now located at the Shops at South Town in Sandy. The immersive experience follows a dream-inspired storyline to be followed through a polychromatic labyrinth designed by artists, volunteers and audio-visual wizards. The new location is five times bigger and infinitely dreamier. Dreamscapes is appropriate for all ages! A project of the nonprofit Utah Arts Alliance, Dreamscapes is born from the imaginations of more than 100 artists, builders and audio-visual wizards. Perhaps most incredible, Dreamscapes is built using upcycled and reclaimed materials, making this Utah’s first environmentally- sustainable attraction. With partnerships from amazing organizations like 3 Form, Salt Palace Convention Center, Habitat for Humanity’s Restore and others, Dreamscapes diverts tons of waste from the landfill. The end result is a vision of beauty that knows no bounds, a manifestation all dreamers can embrace. Annual memberships are now available for individuals, duos and families. Memberships include free admission to Dreamscapes for one year, presale access to Dreamscapes live performances, invitations to new exhibit preview parties and custom Dreamscapes swag.

Ideas about the American West, both in popular culture and in commonly accepted historical narratives, are often based on a past that never was, and fail to take into account important events that actually occurred. The exhibition Many Wests: Artists Shape an American Idea examines the perspectives of dozens of modern and contemporary artists who offer a broader and more inclusive view of this region, which too often has been dominated by romanticized myths and Euro-American historical accounts. This exhibition presents an opportunity to examine previous misconceptions, question racist clichés, and highlight the multiple communities and histories that continue to form this iconic region of the United States. Working in various media, from painting and sculpture to photography and mixed media, the artists featured bring a nuanced and multifaceted history to light. Many Wests highlights many voices—including artists who identify as Black, Indigenous, Asian American, Latinx, and LGBTQ+—who stake a claim in the American West. The exhibition’s three sections—Caretakers, Memory Makers, and Boundary Breakers—highlight the various ways artists explode singular conceptions of the American West, often demonstrating the resilience of marginalized communities who survived against the odds. The modern and contemporary artists featured in Many Wests reveal that “the West” has always been a place of multiple stories, experiences, and cultures.
