More than just your typical art gallery, Utah Cultural Celebration Center exhibits reflect community partnerships that help fulfill the UCCC mission, celebrate diversity and the local arts scene, and provide a forum for community dialog. We encourage the expression of ideas, values, public education, and civic engagement. Our team interacts with and supports the local community to present art, artifacts and information in ways that build appreciation for diversity and enrich the community.
The main exhibit area, the Celebration Gallery, hosts 6-8 diverse exhibits throughout the year, ranging from annual favorites like the Trees of Diversity or Face of Utah Sculpture exhibits, to traveling educational exhibits from the Smithsonian to local artist groups like the Intermountain Society of Artists. New for 2018, we've added a number of other smaller gallery spaces throughout the facility, the Crescent & Bridge Galleries on the main level, and the Plaza Gallery on the plaza level. These new galleries display a diverse group of exhibits from individuals, artist collectives, and curated group shows.
Everyone is welcome to visit the Galleries and enjoy the exhibits free of charge.
Every year the Face of Utah Sculpture provides Utah artists a forum to present Utah culture through sculptural form. The origins of this dynamic exhibit, envisioned twelve years ago by glass artist Dan Cummings, features both well-known and emerging Utah sculptors, showcasing both traditional and contemporary sculpture in a variety of techniques, styles, and mediums. The result is an exciting and eclectic mix of excellence in artistry in countless forms!
