What’s billed as Utah’s “largest collection of street art” will grow in May, with the addition of 10 artworks in South Salt Lake during the fourth annual Mural Fest.
The Utah Arts Alliance — which presents Mural Fest with the South Salt Lake Arts Council — has released the list of artists, and the buildings where they will be adding their painted work through May 14. The finished works will be celebrated during a “meet & greet” on Saturday, May 15, at 6 p.m.
Artists from Utah and beyond will add murals to 10 locations, most of them in South Salt Lake’s Creative Industries Zone, an area between 2100 South and 2700 South, and 300 West and State Street.
One of the highlights is the third phase of “Habitat,” a multipanel mural by Salt Lake City artist Traci O’Very Covey, at the Mountainland Design building, at 2345 S. Main St. O’Very Covey created the first two phases at the 2019 and 2020 Mural Fest.

• George Baker, at Team Thirteen, 131 W. 2100 South.
