Artwork by Salt Lake Arts Academy Students in Grades 6–8 • Exhibit runs from October 9–November 22.

Salt Lake Arts Academy students are encouraged to explore their world through many different lenses, across subjects. In these pieces our Visual Arts students in Grades 6-8 express how they see and understand their world: in their own lives, in school and in our larger community. We asked our students to reflect on what is important to them and how they might communicate an idea through their own artistic creations.

For inspiration, students traveled to the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art and had an in-school visit from The Springville Museum to observe how artists from history, regions and backgrounds interpret their ideas. After a reflection period of discussion and idea sharing, students had their choice of subject and materials to create the pieces in this exhibit, expressing their own ideas about what they see important and relevant in their surroundings.

Salt Lake Arts Academy is a free public charter school in downtown Salt Lake City, serving 408 students in grades five through eight. Admission is by Lottery, and is open to all students in Utah. Learn more about us at www.slarts.org.

About the branch

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed for renovations.

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The structure embraces a public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium.

A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
