A few days ago, the mayor broke the news that the Provo Library will soon have a new gallery on the fourth floor:
The initial plans detail the conversion of the space into a large, open venue that will host traveling exhibits from major and regional museums and galleries. Many science, historical, art, and cultural museums like the Smithsonian and the National Endowment for the Humanities create traveling exhibits that can more easily fit into smaller spaces. The Library anticipates hosting 4 – 5 exhibits a year that would be free and available to our residents.
This announcement is exciting because, as I’ve written before on this blog, the arts are a major asset for the community. This new gallery space is also exciting because it further bolsters one of Provo’s best destinations, which can benefit locals and tourists alike.
