Artistic Arsenals: A Lecture Series by Art Historian Dr. Micah J. Christensen

Dr. Christensen — art historian and ICAA Utah Board Member — is back, continuing a series of invigorating discussions tailored to both artists and art enthusiasts.  For most people knowing how to understand and enjoy art can be intimidating.  Artistic Arsenals bridges the gap between those who create art and those who want to appreciate it more.

Lectures are held every two weeks.  Videos and recordings of each lecture are available at

Tuesday lectures are held at Anthony’s Fine Art in Salt Lake City.  Thursday lectures are held at the Beaux-Arts Academy in Provo.
