2009 Utah Local Festival of Arts

(Salt Lake City, UT)-- Generation A is pleased to announce the first ever Utah Local Festival of Arts (UTLFA). This event will provide a place where local artists will display their work while attracting visitors who have an appreciation for art. This inaugural arts festival will be held Saturday October 10, 2009 from 5 to 11 pm at the Salt Lake Masonic Temple, 650 E. South Temple, Salt Lake City.

The UTLFA will bring together dance, music, cultural heritage and visual artists while featuring unknown, yet extremely talented artists. In fact, many of the participating artists have never shown their work, or have only taken part in private showings. Local food vendors will also participate by providing regular festival fare, while visitors peruse booths to learn more about art in Utah.

A festival like the UTLFA is unique as it promotes artists’ work differently than other arts festivals found along the Wasatch Front. “This is one of few arts festivals that accepts artists exclusively from Utah,” says Generation A Executive Director Amy Allred. “We wanted to celebrate the best of what Utah has to offer while bringing together great artistic organizations like Vivace, Studio D and more.” Additionally, this occasion also showcases one of Salt Lake City’s most historic and architecturally beautiful buildings, the Salt Lake Masonic Temple.
