Description: Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie, embodies the idea that a library is more than a repository of books and computers; it reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The building, which opened in February 2003, is double the previous space with 240,000 square feet for more than 500,000 books and other materials, and room for the collection to grow.

"lorem ipsum," is the standard dummy text of the typesetting world. The same is true for visual art that involves text. Viewers often get lost reading the text instead of considering the artwork's aesthetic aspects. Text has value for its formal as well as its communicative qualities. The beauty of language finds expression not only in the communicated content, but in the symbols we use to represent language visually. Works by Aundrea Frahm, Gary Barton, Joseph Ostraff, Justin Wheatley, Linnie Brown, Namon Bills, Nick Stephens, and Randal Marsh will be presented. The exhibit runs Jan. 31-March 13, 2015. There will be an opening reception Jan. 31, 4-5:30 p.m. Visit for information.
