It was terrifically hot, but so were the bands; the fountains were cool, as was the jazz, and the evening air refreshing – if you lasted that long with the sun beating down at this year’s Utah Arts Festival. Still, artist and gallery owner Karen Horne danced tirelessly with husband Michael Rowley over all four days; the food lines weren’t too long and people were gracious about sharing a table. There was literature, workshops in the library (here seen all lit up at night); stuff for kids, dizzying 3-D chalk work by Kurt Wenner: Art did indeed Live Here.
