Art in public view at 9th & 9th

Salt Lake's east bench is well-known for its micro-neighborhoods pulled together by the gravitational pull of clusters of businesses amidst largely residential neighborhoods. One of the best known is the 9th and 9th neighborhood where an intersection of commercial buildings featuring restaurants, boutiques and the Tower Theatre, has made the area an example of livable urban living. One aspect of the neighborhood that makes it particularly attractive is its art -- from the offical sculptures installed by the Salt Lake Arts Council on every corner of the 9th and 9th intersection to the street art that adorns the walls of many businesses and the private art in public view that you'll find in abundance if you walk the neighborhood as our photographer Kim Silcox did recently.

Salt Lake's Brittany Reese Dew

Brittany Reese Dewå

There are three drawings of me that were sketched by NYC-based artist Terry Rosenberg. They are personal portraits that he drew while I was dancing in a rehearsal with Neta Pulvermacher's company. He sketches many dancers and dance companies, including American Ballet Theater, and he generously gave me three that he had done of me. I love them.

design elementRight now I am not reading anything interesting except stuff related to work including information on becoming a non-profit and information on video editing, etc. The last book I read for fun was probably "Running with Scissors." With running the business and two kids I haven't had much time to read, sadly.

I would choose Egon Schiele to paint my portrait if he were living or perhaps my late friend who made installations of miniature worlds and people that were on objects that appeared to be eyeballs/planets.
