Remember when September meant writing an essay along the lines, “What I Did On My Summer Vacation”? With all their outdoor concert and festival programming, the Salt Lake Arts Council would have llittle problem filling up their assigned page and a half. They’d even be able to throw in a paragraph or two to please their art teacher. In June the Arts Council installed the newest version of Flying Objects, temporary, large-scale sculptures by local artists installed along downtown streets. For the September edition, Kelly Green brought back her shots of the new works, rounding out the photo essay with some additional public art from the downtown area. What do you think of Utah’s public art? Stop by at Rio Gallery’s current show, Placemaking, the process and influence of public art for some additional food for thought.
Check out the photo shoot in the September 2012 edition of 15 Bytes.
