Last weekend I enjoyed an all too brief visit to Salt Lake City, where my wife was exhibiting her Costume Inventory Resources business at the USITT (U.S. Institute for Theatre Technology) annual convention and trade show. This was the Salt Palace convention center (above), right downtown.
Just a block from the Salt Palace is Temple Square, epicenter of all things LDS, filled with stunning architecture, water features, and landscaping.
Next-door to the Salt Palace is the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. Outside, along West Temple Avenue, is some public art.
My favorite was “Curious Voyager” by Michael J. Bingham.
Reflected in the Curious Voyager’s visor is Maurice Abravanel Hall, home of the Utah Symphony. The lobby is home to a massive glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly (seen below with reflections from Temple Square).
Our voyage continued with a drive across the Bonneville Salt Flats and through the basin and range of Nevada, toward home.
