At the center of downtown's art scene--one of the first galleries to bring modern art to our pioneer village.. Gallery Vibe Founded in 1931, Salt Lake Art Center is, quite literally, in the center of the city. The building was remodeled a few years ago and its new look complements the neo-urban style of its trendy neighbors--the Salt Palace and Abravanel Hall.
Education SLAC offers four-month classes in photography and pottery, and schedules regular tours for students. Behind the Main Gallery, the Art Center houses a workroom for film-makers, a darkroom for photographers, and a studio for potters.
Exhibits The downstairs Main Gallery rotates national touring exhibits every four months, while the smaller Street Level Gallery, usually exhibiting the work of local artists, brings in a new show every six weeks. "Articles," SLAC's artist mercantile gift shop, sells jewelry, gifts, and other odds and ends made by local artists.
