Arts & Cultural Events in Park City (Park City: June)

Opening May 28th in conjunction with the monthly Gallery Stroll, Gallery MAR's latest exhibition features the works of well known local artist Randall Lake. During his forty+ year career, Lake has accumulated an impressive resume of awards, commissions, and collections. "Bread and Blue" is a collection of works that are intensely personal: "The imagery in these works, I saw this and I witnessed this." This work is Randall Lake's life. These paintings are coming honestly from this artist, without censure. "Bread and Blue" reminds us that it's the struggle that brings people together, and not perfection. An artists reception is from 6 to 9pm.

The Kimball Art Center has three new shows opening on June 5th. "Don't Fence Me In" presents two Colorado quilters' groups, The Piecemakers and Quilt Explorations, as they take a decidedly modern look at the icons of the West (inset). Bridget Conn: Conjure Tales will also open in the Kimball's Badami Gallery and Justin Wheatley: House on the Street is presented in the Kimball's Garage Gallery. Check out all the exciting events associated with these new exhibits as well as Summer classes at the Kimball Art Center website!

On June 9th, Mountain Town Music presents Electric Music and Summer People Party featuring Topaz and Mudphonic all the way from Austin, Texas, at Downstairs, Wednesday, at 9:30pm. Jambase describes this music as "..a torrid affair of percolating psychedelic funk and raunchy backwoods Texas blues produces Topaz & Mudphonic, a bastard child that could just as easily rock platforms on the streets of New York City as it could let it's bare feet dangle in the Colorado River". A portion of the proceeds from this event go to support Mountain Town Music and the summer concert season.

On June 13th, Park Silly Sunday Market returns! Park Silly Sunday Market is an ecofriendly open air market, street festival and community forum where neighbors and friends come together to celebrate the Park City community. "Community, this is where it happens!" Come join locals and visitors to officially welcome the summer season. Experience visual art, performance art, music and buy local organic farm produce. The Park Silly staff is also looking for volunteers to assist with the weekly event. Contact them by checking out the website and join in a local arts and culture movement!

The third Annual Savor the Summit returns on Saturday, June 19th combining Park City's unique and diverse dining options with our celebrated community cultural assets as well as lots and lots of music! New this year - Before you take your seat, take in some art! Savor the Summit brings a unique opportunity for a mid-month Gallery Stroll on Saturday the 19th of June. From 4 to 6 pm, enjoy a special stroll that gives locals and Park City visitors alike the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments at participating galleries,while exploring Park City's exciting art scene. Go to the Savor the Summit website for more information or the Park City Gallery Association website for information about the stroll.

Beginning June 25, the Egyptian Theatre is proud to present "Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical." This fabulous musical centers on The Tribe, speaking out against war and repression and singing out about love and freedom. The Egyptian Theatre is the only theatre - outside of the Broadway and West End productions - staging "Hair" anywhere in the world this year. The Egyptian Theatre dedicates this production to the memory of Joann Krajeski. Her adoration of live performance and The Egyptian Theatre is matched by one other individual - Rick Rogers. Joann and Rick formed a partnership, "Save Our Stage," which truly saved and renovated our beloved Egyptian Theatre.
