Frank Riggs : 1964 W. 500 South

Look at its location on a map and its hard to think of a more out of the way place for a piece of public art, but people who work in anonymous office buildings under the shadow of the freeway deserve aesthetic pleasure just as much as anyone else. Frank Rigg’s untitled 1978 minimalist sculpture graces the grounds of the Salt Lake City Public Services Parks Division building. Riggs was a New York City artist who originally came to Utah to take a position at Brigham Young University.
