Utah Arts Festival ranked #14 in the Top 100 Fine Arts Fairs for 2011
Salt Lake City, UT: The Utah Arts Festival just nabbed the #14 spot in the Top 100 Fine Arts Fairs for 2011 from the Art Fair SourceBook.
The classification is based on average fine art sales and attendance from 2010.
“Last year the Festival was #39,” says Festival Executive Director Lisa Sewell, “We’re getting closer to our goal of cracking the top 10.”
“We applaud your efforts in reaching this level among your peers,” says Greg Lawler, Editor and Publisher of the Art Fair SourceBook.” There are literally thousands of art fairs across the country each year, so achieving this ranking is a truly significant accomplishment.”
The Utah Arts Festival is the state’s largest outdoor festival celebrating the fine arts as well as multiple arts disciplines. The 2010 Festival was host to 140 visual artists who were chosen by a jury of 8 professionals led by Matt Jacobson, Staci Schoenfeld-Young and Amanda Neff.
This year, the 2011 Utah Arts Festival celebrates its 35th Anniversary and runs June 23–26 on Library Square.
