Missed something? Check out these featured highlights from this past year, and start gearing up for another calendar of spectacular events in 2018!
In January, ICAA Utah was thrilled to see a sold-out crowd at the Springville Museum of Art’s Panel Discussion, “Is the Classical Tradition Relevant Today?” Over 100 attendees — what an evening! Thank you to Magleby Commercial Millwork for sponsoring a dinner with the speakers!
On March 23rd, Richard Sammons of Fairfax & Sammons Architects in New York taught an invigorating workshop — “Introduction to Classical Proportion” — hosted by Anthony’s Fine Art & Antiques. As the great Sir Edwin Lutyens called it, proportion is “the great game, the high game of architecture,” yet despite its importance it continues to be neglected and misunderstood in contemporary arts education. Bringing one of the masters of this lost knowledge to Utah, the ICAA helped to train interior designers, artists, and architects on how to incorporate these principles into their work.
Our Summer Gala was a great success! Fine cuisine, live entertainment by two gifted musicians, and an auction of exclusive original art set the mood for a marvelous evening. Congratulations to our award winners
and to our community of patrons of the arts. Another sold-out event!
Presentations by Emeritus ICAA Utah President Robert Baird stand out as another highlight of the year. Guests were awed by magnificent details from the recent cast iron restoration of the United States Capitol by Baird’s company Historical Arts & Casting. Who knew that one of our own Utah natives helped to preserve the great classical symbol of our nation’s liberty?!
A huge thank you to all our supporters, members, and participants for making this year’s successes a reality. Stay tuned for more exciting news and events to come!
We are grateful to all of our sponsors and partners during the year!
