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.

Christian Asplund (viola, keyboards) and Steven Ricks (trombone, electronics) have been making music together for the past 12 years as RICKSPLUND, an improvisatory duo that blends acoustic and electronic sounds into a constant flow of mercurial music. The duo has performed and recorded with Douglas Ewart, Vinny Golia, Ron Coulter, and many others, and their music is available on the Neuma, pfMENTUM, New Focus Recordings, and Comprovise Records labels. They are both currently professors of music composition and theory at BYU. Their performance at 12MM will feature their typical blend of diverse sounds and influences--please enjoy!

Constance Anderson will be presenting their film Structure Feels Poetic to Me.  The film was choreographed by Constance Anderson, Sicily Demmerly, Allison Shafter, Terra Knaapen, and Emm Zinn; and performed by Sicily Demmerly, Allison Shafter, Terra Knaapen, and Emm Zinn. 

Once the boundaries of the box are crossed, the performer must perform. The box is a 4”x4” stage.
While inside the box, the performer cannot see outside the perimeters. The performers’ field of vision becomes nearsighted.
The floor does not have to be the floor.

Structure Feels Poetic to Me was directed, edited, filmed, and hand colored by Constance Anderson.

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.
