Fall for Art this Season at the UMFA
The Utah Museum of Fine Arts Announces Fall Exhibition Schedule

Salt Lake City, UT - Fall for art this season at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA). Museum lovers with varied artistic tastes will have the opportunity to discover and enjoy five diverse exhibitions at the UMFA on the University of Utah campus during the fall and early winter months. A highlight of the season is a retrospective exhibition of work by pioneering artist Nancy Holt, best known for her Sun Tunnels sculpture located in Utah´s desert region.

The UMFA's current exhibition, Speed: The Art of the Performance Automobile, will remain on view through September 16, 2012.

Fall Exhibition Schedule
5 Blocks
September 21, 2012-April 21, 2013
The first new exhibition to open at the UMFA this fall will be 5 Blocks. Presented in the Emma Eccles Jones Education Gallery, 5 Blocks will feature youth artwork created in collaboration with UMFA educators. Students at Hawthorne Elementary and Granger High School investigated a five-block area near their schools, examining how we shape the spaces we live in and how, in turn, those spaces shape us. The students then used their experience to create art in a variety of media that will be shown in the exhibition.
