Works by Nelson Mandela, Prince Charles part of Kimball Winter Art Salon
The Kimball Art Center is known for its annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival, which brings renowned international artists into town for a weekend of art and celebration each summer.
The event, which is the nonprofit organization's biggest fundraiser, has been such a success that executive director Robin Marrouche wanted to present a unique winter fundraiser during the height of Park City's ski season.
So, Marrouche and Susan Swartz, an internationally renowned, Park City-based painter, have collaborated to organize the first Winter Art Salon, which will be held Friday, Feb. 21, to Sunday, Feb. 23, at the Stein Eriksen Lodge.
The salon, which is free and open to the public, will feature artwork by Swartz, the late Nelson Mandela, Prince Charles, Dale Chihuly and jewelers Linda Lee Johnson and Alexandra Hart.
