Local artists perform or present short works in a variety of media, including music, dance, film, and spoken word. Held the third Sunday of each month.

pinyonpine is the music of Tj Nelson, a filmmaker from Salt Lake City, UT exploring analog, modular and music esoterica. The piece performed is an ambient exploration of restraint and texture. Sources of sound include loops captured from various analog synthesizers, field recordings, and live patching.


Kellie St. Pierre’s film Spectra speaks to the range of expression we humans hold all at once. It's a celebration of fluidity, authenticity, and the honoring of multiplicity. The film features a stunning collaboration of local artists--choreography by Molly Heller, and performance by Elle Taylor.

Kellie St. Pierre (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist, invested as a choreographer, performer, filmmaker, and educator, based in Salt Lake City, UT. Through her wide interest in the collaboration of dance and technology, Kellie is constantly researching the balance of vibrant energy and meditation of the human story, the impact of our relationships to our environments, and the visibility of people in both front and behind the camera.


Nichele Woods shares an early work-in-progress and the first public appearance of The Woods Dance Project. Mark your calendar for the quintet’s premiere this June at The Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, presented by RDT’s Link Series. Woods pushes her Postmodern and Release-style aesthetics into the surreal as she muses upon the space between our private and public lives. A few questions coming up in rehearsal: What does it mean to be authentic? Am I ever inauthentic when I am alone? What is the space between the private and the public? The journey between? 
 
Five local dance artists join Woods for the journey: Natalie Border, Jonathan Kim, Tara McArthur, Morgan Phillips, and Melissa Younker.

Nichele has been publicly presenting her private world of choreography since 2013. Her creative process aims to create a space and framework in which the dancers can have an honest experience that is informed by their lived and living histories. Founded in 2024, The Woods Dance Project is a project-based dance entity committed to supporting equity and career sustainability for contemporary dance artists in Salt Lake City.

12 Minutes Max is dedicated to the memory of our dear friend and colleague Paul Reynolds: artist, librarian, and patron of the arts. 12 Minutes Max is a curated monthly performance series featuring experimental short works by local artists in many different disciplines, including dance, music, film, and more. Each piece is followed by a Q&A with the artist. 12MM is modeled after the program originated by On the Boards in Seattle.

This event happens on the third Sunday of each month.

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.
