Whether sleek gallery spaces, lively art festivals or world-class photography exhibitions, every destination has its own artistic personality and cultural identity. Park City, home to the world-famous Sundance Film Festival, is a mountain destination with a thriving art scene. Below are some of our favorite artful attractions to explore when taking a break from the ski slopes and hiking trails.
KIMBALL ART CENTER (KAC) - A pillar of the community since 1976, KAC is dedicated to providing arts access, education and experiences through exhibitions, art programs and events. It offers free admission to its museum, which features renowned exhibitions by local and nationally acclaimed artists, as well as visual art classes to kids and adults. Currently in the main gallery is Cold Places: Photographs by Sue Flood, an exhibition running through April 7.

The event is KAC’s largest fundraiser, with proceeds going toward art education, scholarships, after-school art programs and more.
