On July 13, 2017,
Park City’s art devotees gathered to support the Kimball Art Center. The annual gala is a tradition that calls upon the community to support the Kimball Art Center’s programming. Kimball Art Center (KAC) provides arts access, education, engagement and experience to the Park City area, with a focus on youth outreach.
“Through our exhibitions, educational arts programs and events, KAC provides a platform and a place for artists and arts enthusiasts to come together to explore, celebrate, develop and cherish the creative spark that lives within us all. We believe that art brings meaning, joy, direction, community enhancement and inspiration to the 85,000+ community members we serve each year. We know that art changes lives and brings people together, sustaining our vibrant community and catalyzing positive change in the world around us.”
An evening full of inspiration, the gala featured an Art Bar cocktail reception including a Richard Sera showcase, a portrait lounge with MANICPROJECT photography, and live music by DJ Chaseone2. Vivince had the honor of curating a prize package for evening’s live auction, in partnership with Firewood on Main and Parallel Wines. It was also a privilege to have the assistance of the sweet young man seen above in the auctioning process- he certainly sparked inspiration among guests to give the center! The package included a thoughtfully designed, all-inclusive Glamping-Style dining experience, comprised of Firewood on Main’s Chef John Murcko’s open-flame cooking and Parallel Wine’s exceptional pairings. It afforded the winning couple a night of ‘unplugged’ romanticism, combining the organic outdoors and modern design elements.
The gala was truly a night to remember in a bold black-and-white theme which paid homage to Richard Sera’s print work. Honorable guests included Sundance Board of Trustees Chair Pat Mitchell and alumni from the Young Artists Academy. The dining package sold for $8,400, and will directly support Kimball Art Center’s yearly programming including the Young Artists Academy, the Elementary Visual Arts program and the Arts Festival. Congratulations to the Kimball Art Center for another successful year!
