Art Talk, Event
At KAC, we value creativity, curiosity, collaboration, and diversity. Our programs operate on the belief that the arts sustain vibrant communities, challenge assumptions, celebrate multiple perspectives, and foster positive social change. To help us collaborate and define how architecture may contribute to our future, Kimball Art Center has invited architect and educator Martin Finio, AIA to Park City to present his portfolio of projects, building and architectural ideas.
Through examples of his work, Finio will lead a discussion titled, What is This Thing. Addressing some of the fundamental questions that architecture asks – and tries to answer. During its transformation, Kimball Art Center seeks a collaborative discussion on how architecture contributes to its own mission-related goals.
