Salt Lake County Public Art Program
Art connects people to a place, a time, a community. One way Salt Lake County honors the spirit and values of the people who live and work in our community is through the Salt Lake County Art Collection. The art is divided into two distinct collections – Fine Arts and Percent for Art – and both are free to the public and easy to access.
The Fine Art Collection
The Fine Art Collection is a 600+ piece permanent collection including paintings, photographs, mixed media and sculpture. The Collection is eclectic with a unifying theme - Utah. Each artist represented has lived or worked in Utah, or is currently working in Utah. Our Fine Art collection is on display at county facilities, with the majority displayed at the County Government Center.
Percent for Art Collection
Percent for Art pieces are site-specific installations that complement a building, park, or any public space. Public Art is integrated into the design and construction of all new county facilities, to enhance the facility and engage the community. Salt Lake County's Percent for Art installations range from murals and sculptures to mosaics, stained glass, and larger environmental works.
If you live in Salt Lake County, you are within minutes of art pieces that represent and reflect our community.
