Utah Images 2015


2015 marks the seventh Utah Images, a juried, commemorative, Utah art exhibit presented by Equitable Life & Casualty to celebrate its 80th anniversary.

The Utah Images 2015 exhibit will hang on the first floor of the historic Salt Lake City & County Building (451 South State Street), beginning November 9, 2015 and ending December 4, 2015. The exhibit location is easily accessible and FREE to the public.
