Artful collaboration results in full spectrum of Davis County talent

Newly open CenterPoint Legacy Theatre joins with Bountiful/Davis Arts Center to
showcase works from Davis County artists

Centerville, UT—January 26, 2011—In an effort to spotlight art in many forms, the Bountiful/Davis Art Center (BDAC) is joining with CenterPoint Legacy Theatre (CPT) to display works by Davis County artists. Twenty-eight artists’ work will be prominently displayed on the mezzanine level of the Davis Center for the Performing Arts, CPT’s new location, during the run of “Hairspray”, February 14 through March 12.

“We are thrilled to join with CenterPoint in showing the citizens of Davis County a full spectrum of artistic talent that is right in our backyard,” said Emma J. Dugal, Executive Director. “The Bountiful/Davis Arts Center’s vision is to engage and educate our community about the arts and we can’t think of a more beautiful venue than the Davis Center for the Performing Arts for that purpose.”

The Davis Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) is home to the newly renamed CenterPoint Legacy Theatre. DCPA is a $14.5 million dollar arts center created from RAP taxes contributed from the cities of Centerville, Bountiful and Davis County. “CenterPoint is the new cultural epicenter for arts in Davis County,” said Glen McKay, CPT’s board chair. “We are proud to work with the BDAC to acquaint our patrons not only with our performance artists, but also those who work with canvas, oil, and watercolor.” Participating artists include Diane Turner, Lester B. Lee, George Handrahan, Sandra Rast and Simon Winegar.

About Bountiful/Davis Arts Center: Bountiful/Davis Art Center began as a collaboration between the University of Utah and Bountiful City. The City’s wish for closer, local opportunities for college courses and a general fine arts program for its citizens was an excellent fit with the University’s goal of establishing a presence in the community. Eventually, the University and Bountiful City ended their collaboration with BAC and it became an independent 501 © 3 corporation in 1983-84. At the same time the name was changed to Bountiful/Davis Art Center. For over 35 years, BDAC has been the premiere community supported foundation and gathering place for the fostering of quality artistic expression and education.
