Urban Arts Festival showcases the diversity of Salt Lake City and its people

(Steve Griffin | The Salt Lake Tribune) Artist Jonathan Magee of the Oregon Wind Spinners talks with festival goers as his art flashes reflected light as they spin during the Urban Arts Festival at the Gallivan Center in Salt Lake City Sunday September 17, 2017. The two day festival featured artists, music, dance performance, automotive arts, projection art, virtual reality and new media arts.

Look beyond the concrete towering above and asphalt sprawling below, and you’ll notice Salt Lake City’s got plenty of character, best exhibited by the vibrancy of its people and culture.

And the Urban Arts Festival highlights it all.

The two-day event, which concluded Sunday, showcases hundreds of artists, performers and musicians in various mediums that include automotive arts, virtual reality, fashion, graffiti and more. It’s one of the largest free community art events in Utah.
