Arts & Culture

When the Department of Economic Development was created, Mayor Biskupski elevated a major economic driver for Salt Lake City: the arts. The Capital City boasts a diverse arts and culture scene, including museums, art galleries, world-class ballet and modern dance companies, opera, Broadway and symphony performances, folk and fine art, and more. On average, over 2,000 individuals and organizations benefit from our Arts, Culture, and Events funding and City arts grants. From the glowing Eccles Theater to the cultural campus of Library Square, Salt Lake City has become recognized as an international arts and culture destination.
