EVENT: November Happenings at Kimball Art Center (PARK CITY)

Dear Valued Members & Supporters, 
The Park City Kimball Arts Festival seems like it happened just last week, but we are already gearing up for next year! November 1 marks the opening of our Call for Artists for next year’s Festival, which will be the 49th annual. If you are an artist, I encourage you to apply or share it with those who might be interested. All applications are vetted by a blind jury that changes each year. Artist applications are due by March 1, 2018
November also brings us Thanksgiving. I wanted to take a moment to express how grateful I am to have been so warmly welcomed into the Park City community in July. Now it’s time for me, and you, to support our amazing community during Live PC Give PC. On November 10, I encourage you to give to the Kimball Art Center and other Park City nonprofits that make our mountain town so special and vibrant! 
Finally, this is the last month to see Jimmi Toro: Kindle a Light. Make sure you come by our Main Gallery and Cafe Gallery to see his powerful and unique artwork.
From all of us at the Kimball, have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and thank you for your continued support. 
Happy Creating,
Lindsie Smith
Executive Director
Animals of Park City
Kylie Millward
Tuesdays, November 7, 14, 21, 28
3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Students will use the animals that live in the Park City area as inspiration to create masks, printed patterns and self-portraits. Kids will begin class constructing masks, then they will move onto carving and printmaking to make quirky printed animal patterns. On the last day of class, kids will paint silly animal self-portraits with acrylic paint.

Have your kids take an art class here at the Kimball! Our classes inspire children to express their creativity and build new connections. Printmaking, ceramics, painting and weaving are just to few of the mediums we offer. Our kids' classes are programmed for ages 6-10. Art Starts Here!

Jimmi Toro: Kindle A Light
Main Gallery & Cafe Gallery:
September 1 - November 26
Kindle a Light is a unique opportunity to view the creative process. In this interwoven exhibition, each piece inspires the other—a song creates a visual image, a painting comes to life in video. Sight and sound combine, creating a new connection between artist and viewer. It is a complete immersion in the intrepid and thoughtful mind of Jimmi Toro, shedding a brilliant new light on the darkness of mere being.

BRANDed PC, a pop-up shop created by Park City Summit County Arts Council to highlight local creative brands, will be in the Kimball’s Main Gallery December 4-10. Park City’s creative makers—those that have boldly moved a vision from idea to product—will be selling their work and sharing their stories. BRANDed PC is a celebration of the power of community, the power of buying local and the power of our local visionaries, makers and risk-takers.
