Heading to Utah? Don’t Miss the Utah Arts Festival this Weekend


Are you serious about art? How serious? The Utah Arts Festival is so serious that they’re taking an entire four-day weekend to celebrate painting, sculpture, music, dance, food, film, theater, literature — you name it, and somebody at the UAF is ready to exhibit it, entertain with it, or educate about it.

This year’s festival features huge harps. Using 3,000 feet of brass musical wire and a glass and concrete wall, a California artist has created two giant stringed instruments at Salt Lake City’s Library Square.

These 16-string “Earth Harps,” along with other giant sculptured instruments, are a featured element of the 2008 Utah Arts Festival, which begins today and continues through Sunday.

This festival is much more than its fine group of visual artists, expect also interactive musical experiences with the huge harps, food, crafts and more music.

The Utah Arts Festival is today through Sunday from noon to 11 p.m. at Library Square, 210 E. 400 South, Salt Lake City.
