This stunning revision of Utah Art traces Utah’s artists and their creations from the first European settlements in 1847 through the current Generation. In the 1800’s talented young men and women were sent East and to Paris by the LDS Church to study and bring the ideas of the mainstream art world back to Utah. The results were fascinating. Today Utah’s visual artists magnify this tradition.
