The Eccles Art Center, 2580 Jefferson, Ogden will exhibit the accepted works from the Third Annual Pride Statewide Competition in the Main Gallery June 3 through 25, 2022. A reception in association with Ogden’s Art Stroll will be held on Friday, June 3, 2022 from 5 to 8 p.m. Awards will be posted at this reception as well as on this webpage and social platforms: Facebook and Instagram.
The Eccles Art Center’s Color of Pride Competition was open to Utah resident artists. Original works in any medium including paintings, prints, monoprints, drawings, graphics, pottery, sculptures, and textiles were eligible. Artists were limited to the entry of two works.
The Eccles Art Center is proud to celebrate Pride Month. We support the coming together of artists and art appreciation, through the offering of this competition of shared creative expression. We asked artists to create using the colors of the updated Pride flag.
The Eccles Art Center has established a new fundraiser to add a kinetic sculpture to the center’s sculpture garden. Our goal is to raise $5000 for a wind sculpture and lighting to pay tribute to the pride of Ogden’s LGBQ+ community. Those making a minimum donation of $10 in person will receive an Eccles Art Center Colors of Pride wristband.
Monetary awards will be presented for the Pride Competition. Awards will be posted for the art stroll reception, shared on the art center web page and social media.
The staff of the Eccles Art Center invites you to view the “Colors of Pride” exhibit which will remain on display through June 25, 2022. The Eccles Art Center is returning to its regular gallery hours June 1, 2021. Regular Gallery hours are weekdays 9 to 5 and Saturdays 9 to 3.
