The Utah Museum of Fine Arts has received a big national honor and with it a big chunk of money.
UMFA has been awarded a two-year grant, worth $80,000, from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The grant is to support UMFA's contemporary art series, called salt (yes, in lowercase, like k.d. lang or e.e. cummings that's how you know it's art).
The grant will support salt exhibitions 11 through 14, which will be on display in the spring and fall of 2015 and 2016.
