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.

Halee Jean will perform music from their project RIFF TKR.  Hal is a multifaceted presence in the Salt Lake City scene as an artist, performer, live sound tech, and composer. Hal’s roots run deep into the punk and DIY communities of salt lake city, and you will find them performing and organizing music and art shows on the regular.  Hal is in countless musical groups with hugely varying backgrounds and styles, such as Jazz Jaguars (a jazz lead sheet reading group), GRGL (doomy sludge metal), and Sculpture Club (a goth new-wave group), while also composing music for their non-traditional ensemble, Hoofless.  RIFF TKR (pronounced riff ticker) is a project for Hal’s overflow compositions from other musical projects.


In partnership with The Davey Foundation, Jon Tinsley will present his film The Paternal Prism.  The Paternal Prism is a look into a personal story of Matt Beringer as he reflects on his relationship with his late father, Bruce, and how their connection through a multi-generational hobby provides togetherness between the two.  Matt is a true example of authenticity, having created a prolific, influential career in action sports. He lives with his husband and three dogs in Roy, Utah. Jon Tinsley is a filmmaker based out of Salt Lake City, UT. He specializes in documentary and sports films, as well as a focus in action sports photography.


The Paternal Prism will also be screening at Davey Fest.  Davey Fest is a short film festival in Salt Lake City, produced by The Davey Foundation, a foundation created in memory of actor, director, producer, musician, and community activist David Fetzer, who passed away in 2012, at age 30, from an accidental prescription painkiller overdose. For over a decade, The Davey Foundation has supported emerging filmmakers with grant funding, equipment lending, screening opportunities, and mentorship with established filmmakers. Davey Fest 2024 takes place June 28-30 at Fisher Brewing with a couple dozen short films from across the country. More info at daveyfest.org.


Elle Malan Taylor will perform their work (what if?) there was a Door, a solo dance piece that emerged from improvisational research of light, home, identity, and slowing time. The solo was first performed in March 2023, a performance which represented an important moment of queer self-discovery and artistic growth for Elle. In May 2024, they completed their Modern Dance BFA and Sustainable Food Systems BS at the University of Utah. While at the University of Utah, Elle presented 8 original works and explored the possibilities of props, scenery, live music, spoken word, and improvisation in dance performance. They are currently working as an organic farmer and freelance dancer & choreographer. Elle is eager to connect to people and the Earth through food, play, movement, and art.

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 takes place 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.
