The President’s Gallery : A Sense of Place

February 24 to April 21, 2016
John R. Park Building, Third Floor


In 1914, the first art gallery on the University of Utah campus opened in the Park Building. We are pleased to yet again exhibit art in that space. The original Park Gallery grew over the years to the standalone Utah Museum of Fine Arts with a permanent collection of 20,000 objects — ranging from antiquities and European masterworks to art of the American West and global contemporary art. The new special gallery is devoted to the artistic works of current students, faculty, and staff of the U.
