Park City Collects returns to the Kimball Art Center’s Main Gallery after a highly successful run in 2011. Park City Collects II will feature pieces from 12 diverse private collections from around Park City. Curated by former Kimball Exhibitions Director Erin Linder, the exhibit will bring wonderful works of art from a wide range of time periods, mediums and styles by notable artists from around the world. Everything from photography to painting, ceramics to sculpture, will be explored. Unique pieces from such notable artists as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alvin Gittins, Jeremy Lipking, Javier Pinon, Donald Morris, Henri Matisse and Annie Leibovitz to name just a few, will be exceptionally on loan. Explore the personal stories behind why each collector was drawn to acquire the works on display.
This exhibit is a unique opportunity to see pieces that are typically not available to public viewing. Discover why people in our community collect, how they acquire art, and why the pieces have special meaning to their owners.
