Yard Art is Here

Posted // 2011-05-13 -

A few weeks ago, we prepared you for it. Now, here's how to see it.

In our Earth Day Green Guide issue, Brian Staker wrote about Salt Lake Art Center's "Lawn Gnomes Eat Your Hearts Out" competition, a large scale public-art project built around turning yards into works of art. Today, the entrants go live.

And if you want to take a gander with a bunch of fellow enthusiasts, there are a couple of different ways to do so next Saturday, May 21. A free family bus tour will leave Salt Lake Art Center (20 S. West Temple) at 2:15 p.m., reservation required to Felicia Baca ( If you're interested in a slightly more grown-up variation, the "party bus" tour begins at 4:45 p.m. from the Art Center for $25 per person, with beer, wine and cheeses (the latter from Tony Caputo's) served; 21 and up only, reservation also required.

Or, if you feel like taking a personal trek around the valley to see the entrants, just follow this handy map, which also includes artist statements.
