Salt Lake City’s arts scene isn’t just culturally enriching, it’s also a powerful economic driver for our capital city. I proud to be one of the strongest advocates for arts and culture on the City Council, supporting programs and grants through the Salt Lake Arts Council and the City’s Arts & Culture Fund. I also lead the effort to restore “Percent for Art” (a program that requires at least 1% of any development investment be set aside for public art) within the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City.

By prioritizing the arts in the budget, growing our partnerships with non-profits, and promoting the remarkable talent we have right here at home, I will ensure Salt Lake City remains cultural hub for our residents as well as visitors from around the state and region.
