On July 13, 2017, Park City’s art devotees gathered at the Kimball Art Center Gala to support the Center. The annual gala is a tradition that calls upon the community to support arts. Kimball Art Center (KAC) provides arts access, education, engagement and experience to the Park City area, with a focus on youth outreach.
“Through our exhibitions, educational arts programs and events, KAC provides a platform and a place for artists and arts enthusiasts to come together to explore, celebrate, develop and cherish the creative spark that lives within us all. We believe that art brings meaning, joy, direction, community enhancement and inspiration to the 85,000+ community members we serve each year. We know that art changes lives and brings people together, sustaining our vibrant community and catalyzing positive change in the world around us.”
The incredible evening had a bit of everything; an Art Bar cocktail reception, a Richard Sera showcase, music by DJ Chaseone2, a portrait lounge with MANICPROJECT photography, and a live auction including a package curated by Joseph Urankar of Vivince in partnership with Firewood on Main and Parallel Wines. The package, a thoughtfully crafted, all-inclusive Glamping-Style dining experience, was beautifully designed by Vivince and comprised of Firewood on Main’s Chef John Murcko’s open-flame cooking and Parallel Wine’s exceptional pairings.
The Kimball Art Center Gala was truly a night to remember in a bold black-and-white theme (paying homage to Richard Sera’s print work), with guests like Sundance Board of Trustees Chair Pat Mitchell and alumni from the Young Artists Academy. The dining package sold for $8,400, and will directly support Kimball Art Center’s yearly programming including the Young Artists Academy, the Elementary Visual Arts program and the Arts Festival. Congratulations to the Kimball Art Center for another successful year!
