Culture and Arts in Salt Lake City

When you think of Salt Lake, chances are the first thing that comes to mind is the greatest snow on earth. I won’t fault you for that – Utah is an incredible place to hit the slopes. With 10 ski resorts within a few hours drive of anywhere in the state, it’s a pretty great place to call home in the winter months.  And the summer months? Well, let’s tackle a different kind of skiing … well, we’ve got lakes and reservoirs galore. Whether your a snow-or-sun-bunny, Utah’s got something for you to do all year round.  But what if I were to tell you there’s a whole other side to Utah – one that doesn’t necessarily get the respect it deserves?


Utah has a rich history of providing all that the art community could ever desire – and it extends far past it’s Sundance roots.  Whether you’re looking for performing or visual arts, there’s something enriching for every taste.  Who knew, right?  There’s something for every taste and every age.
