The perfect sunny weather warmed my skin as I chowed down on a burger and fresh cut fries from Scrumptious. I don’t think summer had started until that moment. This is the magic of the Utah Arts Festival, the ultimate curation of visual and performance arts that, for me, inspires for the summer months to follow. … read more

Above all else the Utah Arts Festival shows not only the importance of art in our community, but also the importance of our community to our artists. … read more
