Connecting and Inspiring through Art, Daily.
Kimball Art Center, located at 1251 Kearns Blvd, in Park City, Utah, exists to connect and inspire through art. We do this through international quality art exhibitions and dynamic educational opportunities for the citizens of Park City, Summit County, Wasatch County, and the region’s many visitors.
Through Studio on Main programming, we introduce Park City Kimball Arts Festival visitors to the experiences offered at Kimball Art Center year-round. We hope you enjoy your Studio on Main experiences and visit us at KAC for more connection and inspiration through art.

People of Corn/
Gente De Maiz
Artist: Jorge Rojas
Kimball Art Center’s inaugural artist-in-residence, Jorge Rojas, is a renowned artist, curator, and educator. People of Corn / Gente de Maiz emerges out of his longstanding desire to transform museums into more inclusive spaces. He invites all of us to step out of our usual roles as observers and become integral participants or co-creators in this project.
Be a part of this community artwork. Here, we invite you to shape masa balls into corn people that reflect you, your family, or your community. All corn people will be included in an exhibition that opens at Kimball Art Center on August 13.
Kimball Art Center’s current exhibition, The Stories Woven Within, features the work of three artists, Marie Watt, Adrian Esparza, and Elodie Blanchard, who embrace the indelible nature of the textile.
Here, we invite you to take a strip of fabric, use markers to add one word that is inspired by thinking about our interconnectedness, and then add it into the tapestry by weaving it over and under alternating warp threads on the loom.
Community Sewing Circle
No sewing experience necessary. All ages welcome.
Artist: Marie Watt
My Stories Change When I Know Your Stories
Reclaimed blankets, holding the stories and memories of others, have long been at the center of Marie Watt’s work. She honors the space that these textiles occupy in our lives, swaddling us in birth, death, and countless moments in between. She invites the accumulation of these stories in her newest body of work, Companion Species.
During the Festival, Kimball Art Center staff will share the opportunity to participate in a community sewing circle.
As Watt shares when announcing sewing circle opportunities, “Sewing circles are inclusive by nature and design. Everyone’s voice is equal in a circle; circles can expand or contract as needed to create space. The panels being stitches often start with an Indigenous point of view in relation to site, histories, and Iroquois teachings, and these themes then become touchstones for conversation, connection, and cross-cultural knowledge generously exchanged by participants. Our stories connect us.”
