UMFA NAMED ‘BEST MUSEUM WITHOUT WALLS’ BY SALT LAKE MAGAZINE[bs_row class=”row”][bs_col class=”col-sm-4″]
[bs_col class=”col-sm-8″] Salt Lake Magazine has named the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) the city’s “Best Museum Without Walls” in the new Best of the Beehive 2016 issue for August.
“Utah Museum of Fine Arts has closed for remodeling, but the art hasn’t stopped. Until the building re-opens next year, monthly lectures and community art projects pack the calendar, including family-friendly third-Saturday art projects and . . . backpacks full of gear for kids to explore the Spiral Jetty are available for checkout at the downtown City Library.”
UMFA, temporarily closed since mid-January 2017 for remodeling, is actively hosting community art events and K-12 educational programs on campus, at Salt Lake City Public Library branches, and in classrooms statewide.[/bs_col][/bs_row]
