For a town the size of Park City, the amount of cultural experiences available for visitors and residents is striking. Throughout the year, you are able to experience live music in Miner’s Park, enjoy performing arts at the Egyptian Theatre, get to know up-and-coming and well known artists in the numerous galleries, and take in the cultural experiences that make up both the Sundance Film Festival and the Park Silly Sunday Market. I spent some time window-shopping the last few days and found several share worthy opportunities.
- Create a masterpiece at The Paint Mixer. The Paint Mixer offers a unique mix of art, entertainment and fun. Rumor has it even the not so artistic like myself can achieve greatness. www.thepaintmixer.com
- Go back in time at the Park City Museum. The traveling “Mail Call” exhibit, which runs through October 11, explores the history of America’s military postal system and how even today troops cherish mail from home. www.parkcityhistory.org
- Allow the performers at the Egyptian Theatre to delight, inspire and even educate. Over the next month at the Egyptian, you can enjoy “Evita”, Stand Up comedy and The Inessential Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream". www.parkcityshows.com
- This month Gallery Mar will be celebrating their five-year anniversary. To kick off the festivities, Gallery Mar is giving away an idyllic oil painting of a summer scene, entitled, “Summer Pond,” by Adam Winegar. Stop by Gallery Mar to view Adam’s entire collection of oil paintings and enter to win “Summer Pond”. Don’t miss the official five year celebration on July 26 with a show called “FIVE” that features art by Gallery Mar artists, all interpreting the number 5.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this journey through a small sampling of the cultural experiences available in Historic Park City. Next time you are on Main Street take a little time to discover a share worthy experience.
