Located in the grand lobby of the old Rio Grande Depot, the Rio Gallery was established as a service to Utah artists, providing a free venue for emerging as well as established artists to collaborate on exhibits and engage the community through art-making and dialogue.
Currently at the Rio Gallery:

Thirty-five designs were curated into the DesignArts Utah ’14 exhibit by Ellen Lupton, the senior curator of contemporary design at the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York City. We encourage you to visit the Rio Gallery and see the work of some of Utah’s best professional and student designers from a wide variety of design media.

Design is the creative beginning of any human-initiated arrangement of materials. We are dedicated to the promotion of excellence in the diverse fields of design in Utah. We strive to help the citizens of Utah see, experience, use and value the art of design that surrounds us.
