We asked you to show us how awesome a Utah summer can be and boy, did you ever!

Thanks to everyone who shared their summer moments at historic places, cultural events, arts events, volunteer projects and libraries using the #myutahsummer hashtag.

Now that the temperatures have dropped, and the winter holidays are coming up, why not cozy up and take a moment to enjoy Utah’s summer moments.

Volunteer Pledge Drive

During the holidays, volunteer and donation centers see an influx of individuals and families looking for ways to give back to their communities. Volunteer and donation centers feel a need for help all times of the years, not just during the holidays. For that reason, we are encouraging individuals to pledge to volunteer their time during the slower months of the year. Please fill out the form below to pledge to serve your community.

Alice Gallery

The Alice Gallery is located at the historic Glendinning Mansion in Salt Lake City, which also houses the main offices of Utah Arts & Museums.

“Natural Order”
November 21 – January 16, 2015
Opening reception: Friday, December 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. 

Natural Order represents several years work in capturing environments and elements that kindly align themselves almost serendipitously. Manmade or natural, there are moments where light and shadow can be caught to stop time and reveal an instant that might never be again. Add color and texture to the mix and the conditions are ripe for discovering this natural order almost anywhere.

Budge states, “I really don’t know what the world looks like to other people, but for me it’s a constant arrangement of shapes, patterns and composition revealing themselves. My eyes tend to dissect, crop and distill my surroundings. My background as a graphic designer has greatly influenced my photography style. I’ve found this analysis of composition is less cognitive and more intuitive. It just seems to flow from a visual truth within them. It’s natural, easy and quite beautiful.”

Location & Hours

Glendinning Home, 617 East South Temple, Salt Lake City
8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday; Closed Saturday – Sunday
