Every year, Americans for the Arts, through its Business Committee for the Arts (BCA) program, recognizes 10 businesses of all sizes across the country for their exceptional involvement with the arts that enrich the workplace, education, and the community. These companies set the standard for excellence and serve as role models for others to follow.
This year, Utah’s Zions Bank was named as an honoree. The 2018 BCA 10 was held at The Central Park Boathouse in New York City on October 2, 2018.
We are grateful to Zions Bank for their commitment to our community and for continuing its work as a strong supporter and advocate for the arts. Zions Bank’s arts initiatives vary widely and are well known for its support of local art organizations. For many years Zions Bank and the Natural History Museum of Utah have partnered to host a rotating exhibit highlighting native artwork and crafts. Their own art collection houses more than 3,800 original works of art by regional artists. Private banking clients are invited to annual art shows with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the artist.
We are fortunate to be part of an environment where arts and culture are prioritized and given Utah’s arts scene, it is only natural that businesses such as Zions Bank are allies of the arts too.
Congratulations, Zions Bank!
Zions Bank’s CEO Scott Anderson receives the BCA 10 award.
As part of Salt Lake City’s “Arts for All” program, Zions Bank participated in helping fund the student program for “Hamilton,” which allowed high school students from across the state to see the show.
For 20 years, Zions Bank and the Natural History Museum of Utah have partnered to host a rotating exhibit highlighting native artwork and crafts.
