Utah Arts Festival Runs June 21-24

With food, music and a wide assortment of art exhibits, the Utah Arts Festival offers something for everyone. It kicks off this Thursday and runs through Sunday, noon through 11 pm, at Library Square (400 South and 200 East) in downtown Salt Lake City.

The festival website has complete details.

An unusual attraction this year will be a giant sand sculpture created by artist Ted Seibert. He has 20 tons of sand to work with. People attending the festival will be able to watch it take shape. The Deseret News has this article about the project.

The Salt Lake Turbine has this A-Z guide to the festival. Here's a quote from that article.

"It’s a different festival for every person," says public relations coordinator Eugenie Hero Jaffe. "If you’re into film, you’re going to go to the film program. If you’re into music, you’re going to hear music. And, perchance, if you get to cross over into something new, that makes the festival all the better and richer for you."

Besides music and film, UAF serves up visual artists, literary arts, dance, workshops, interactive exhibits, and plenty of food and drink.
