Holladay's home for the arts!
HOLLADAY ARTS COUNCIL
It is our honor and responsibility to acknowledge to all who meet with us today that we gather on land that is sacred to all indigenous people who came before us in this vast crossroad for the Utes, Goshutes, Paiutes, Shoshone, Navajo and Hopi peoples and their ancestors. It has been their stewardship for time immemorial to care for this land and all of its inhabitants, both two-and-four-legged, winged and water-bound. We honor their memory, their physical presence in our state today, their ancestor’s presence here in spirit, and we do so in our reverence for their resilience in preserving their connections to the Creator. We Honor the People, We Honor the Land.
Thank you to Dustin Jansen and Utah Valley University for allowing us to use this land acknowledgment.
After two long years of COVID restrictions, we were singin' and dancin' and creatin', excited to gather freely again with a smile on our face!

A fine piece of art is like a four-leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have. The Fine Art Show and Sale, a favorite annual event in the city of Holladay, will once again bring together some of the finest artistic talent in the Salt Lake Valley. The event will provide an opportunity to own a piece of fine art that surely will bring luck to the owner for many years to come.
The annual show, sponsored and organized by the Holladay Arts Council Executive Director Sheryl Gillilan and her committee, begins March 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. at an opening reception at Holladay City Hall. Musicians will set the atmosphere for the event, light refreshments will be served, and Fine Art Show awards will be presented. A $3,000 cash prize will be awarded as determined by a panel of three judges from the community. Also, attendees will be encouraged to vote for their favorite piece of art for the coveted people’s choice award.
Sometimes, it takes setting out on creative journeys with writers, artists, historians and bookmobile drivers to be reinspired by the place where we live. In this issue of MUSE, we seized the opportunity to tell stories about the journeys of the people who live and create throughout the state. This is just the first chapter of our storytelling look at Utah’s creative communities, a chance to remind ourselves why culture matters.
There are so many ways to get involved in our arts community. Drop us a line to find out about events, volunteer opportunities and fundraisers! Volunteer here
