Thanks to our community of generous supporters who made this year's gala a record success!

First Look Friday: Two New Exhibitions

May 12, 2023 7:00 pm-9:00 pm

Join us for the opening reception of two new exhibitions—2023 Annual Gala Art Auction Exhibition & Mitchell Barton: Razorbarks. The 2023 Annual Gala Art Auction features artworks donated by 39 local artists. Mitchell Barton is an artist working in Salt Lake City. He received a BFA from Brigham Young University in 2017.

By generously donating artworks to this year’s auction, the artists featured in the 2023 Annual Gala Art Auction Exhibition help to sustain UMOCA’s mission in real and tangible ways, directly impacting artists and their careers and helping to expand the ecology of artmaking in Utah.

The opening reception will feature music by Jazz Jaguars.
