Christo @ University of Utah (SLC: April 19)

The University of Utah College of Fine Arts, Art & Art History Department, Kingsbury Hall and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts present:
April 19th
Kingsbury Hall

Ticketed event
Free and open to the public

Tickets available at www.kingtix.com on Feb 1st.

Legendary artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude collaborated and created monumental environmental works of art for over 40 years. Best known for producing enormous packaging projects: they have wrapped parks, buildings, and entire outdoor landscapes. Believing that people should have intense and memorable experiences of art outside the institution of the museum, Christo typically creates temporary wrappings -- generally lasting several weeks -- on a vast scale. Borrowing land, structures, and spaces used and built by the public, he momentarily intervenes in the local population’s daily rhythm in order to create "gentle disturbances" intended to refocus citizens' impressions. Some of their most famous pieces include The Umbrellas, Wrapped Coast, and The Gates in Central Park NYC. Please join us as Christo will be on stage at Kingsbury Hall one night only as he shares his unique perspective and engaging insights into the world of Art.

This event also made possible by the assistance from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums.
