Public Art

Mayor Mendenhall has given the arts historic new support

The arts are an important part of the fabric of any city, but even more so in Salt Lake City where the city’s vibrant and eclectic cultural scene is part of our identity. Mayor Mendenhall has made the arts more of a priority for the city’s government than it’s been since Ted Wilson was mayor, increasing funding, staffing, and the places it intersects with other aspects of the city government.

Erin’s 50 percent budget increase for the arts was also the first major increase since 1984.
