Thank You for Attending!
Our goal with the Art Soirée was to throw a party to remember! It’s safe to say we accomplished our goal! Wow, did we have fun this weekend.
Thank you for pulling out your dancing shoes and bringing energy to the Art Soirée. From board member, Debby Schiller’s Kimball Art Center dress to multidisciplinary artist, independent curator, and art educator Jorge Rojas’ impactful comments about the power of our work and forward-thinking approach to art in Utah (and Hat Tip to curator Nancy Stoaks), the energy and creativity was inspirational and will remain with us for quite some time.
If you missed it, we also announced our upcoming 2022 artist-in-residence, Nancy Rivera. We hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did.
Not only did we have fun, thanks to your contributions through ticket sales, donations, and auction item bids, we raised significant funds to support our year round programs. Without you we would not be able to support our mission of inspiring and connecting through art.
With your contributions, we are excited to continue to create local access to art that we otherwise would have to seek outside of our community. We are excited to offer a setting for meaningful connection and dialogue as we provide art education to 15,000 students a year.
Thank you for showing up for art and community this weekend. We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
For Your Entertainment

We are lucky to have Ryan Walsh—once described by PCTV as a “Notable Local,” emcee for the Soiree. Walsh works as the Director of Finance for Woodward Mountain Centers. When he is not in the office, you can find him enjoying one of his many hobbies including cycling, skiing, sewing, and performing live music. Despite his busy schedule, he always makes time to help non-profits as their auctioneer or emcee. ryanwalshmusic.com
