The diverse arts and culture scene of Salt Lake City enhances our quality of life and is a significant factor why people and businesses locate here. Whether you dance, paint, sculpt, or perform, the Capital City offers a home and place for everyone to thrive.
Speaking of arts and culture, if you were one of the 30,000+ attendees at this year’s Living Traditions Festival, and didn’t catch every performance – no worries! We’re pleased to announce many of the festival’s performing artists can be seen again this summer at ‘Mondays in the Park’, the long-running concert series hosted by the Utah Division of Arts & Museums at the Chase Home Museum of Folk Arts inside Liberty Park.
And how could one person see EVERY performance from Living Traditions considering there were four stages of musical and dance numbers held simultaneously throughout the weekend? With more than 70 performances, one weekend is simply not enough to see it all! Which is one reason why Mayor Biskupski’s new initiatives for Salt Lake City’s arts community included broadening the Living Traditions Festival’s impact with the creation of year-round, city-wide programming.
The new initiative is part of a renewed effort to implement meaningful strategies and affect meaningful change. The Salt Lake Arts Council is partnering with Utah Division of Arts & Museums, creating new resources for artist development and training; and improving retention of Salt Lake City’s talent.
‘Living Traditions presents Mondays in the Park’ is a FREE weekly concert series held every Monday evening in July and August (except July 23rd) at the Chase Home Museum of Folk Arts inside Liberty Park. The concerts highlight the best of the best Living Traditions performing groups at an intimate, outdoor setting.
While you’re there, check out the newly renovated concessions offered at Liberty Park. It’s an astonishingly easy venue for everyone to enjoy quality arts performances at little or no cost. Pack a picnic and make it a night with family and friends – you’ll be glad you did!
