June 15, 2019 – July 7, 2019
This annual exhibition invites K-12 students from Summit and Wasatch counties to create work surrounding a common theme. This year, the theme is “Storytelling”. In an incredible presentation of the creativity of our community’s young artists, more than 500 students participate each year.
Many thanks to sponsor Tomilee Tilley Gill for her sponsorship of this exhibition.
Tomilee says she was inspired to sponsor this exhibition because she understands the value of an art education. “As a mother of five, business entrepreneur, and founder of a not-for-profit independent school, I am a proponent of art education for our student community. Kimball Art Center offers students education in art and hands-on experience to learn what art is all about, what it means, and why it is made. Through Kimball Art Center’s commitment to spread the love of art, students improve their critical thinking skills, communication, discipline, creativity and self-esteem. Congratulations to the participating students for making this year’s Wasatch Back Student Art Show a success.”
