I went in to Salt Lake City yesterday to check out the 337 Project. This fairly large scale work involved 144 artists adding their artistic interpretation to a soon-to-be-demolished building. Literally each of the building’s 42 rooms and every exterior surface has been given a unique style and feel by the creations of the participating artists.

It was exciting to see the effort that these dedicated artisans put into a project that is actually very temporary. After the completion of the public showing, the building will be razed to make way for a new condominium/office building.

It you are in Northern Utah and want to check it out, today (Sunday) is the final day. There is no cost to enter, though if it is like yesterday there will probably be a slight wait (around 30 minutes for me). The building is located at 337 S. 400 East. There is plenty of free on-street parking.
