In Plain Site: Downtown Salt Lake
You Get the Picture


In the December edition of 15 Bytes we announced Art Lake City, one of our new projects for 2012. As Shalee Cooper and Tyler Bloomquist demonstrate with this photo essay, containing images taken within a five block radius of their downtown loft, there's plenty of art to see on the streets of Salt Lake, from official public art sculptures and murals, to impromptu creative expressions. If you've wondered what you'll find on the Art Lake City app, we hope you get the picture. We also hope you'll get the picture. For us. Whether you take them with your phone, ipad or SLR, we hope you'll send us your images of what you find artistic about Salt Lake City or your local community so we can share them with the world.

eI'm reading Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. I have always been interested in Apple products being the owner of two Ipads, two Ipods and further I used one of the first Macs to run a business in Northern England. I have also had an interest in the architecture of his home near Seattle and the electronic gadgets he had installed there.

A painting by Randall Lake of a village scene in the Netherlands. I have known Randall for years, I traded a Persian Tabriz carpet for this piece. The carpet is still in his studio to this day and I have even caught a glimpse of it in a painting or two by Randall of his studio.

design elementJohannes Vermeer. The style, to me, is both realism and romantic at the same time. When I have visited Europe I have sought out works by Vermeer.
