1,360 Square Feet of Original Art to Commemorate Squatters 25 Years of Beers

Published: 06/26/2014
Salt Lake City, UT – 25 years ago this fall, Squatters founding partners Peter Cole and Jeff Polychronis committed to bring quality brew and delicious pub food to Utah. 12 World Beer Cups, 24 Great American Beer Festival Medals, and 30 North American Brewers Association Medals later, Squatters has teamed up with the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA) to commemorate Squatters 25th Anniversary with equally as impressive art.

UMOCA and Squatters have chosen four local artists to each create a 340 square foot mural with the theme “25 Years of Beer” that will be painted on the east side of Squatters Pub. The selected artists are: Trent Call, Mackinzie Donovan, Richard Landvatter and Mike Murdock.
 
“I’m very excited that Squatters approached UMOCA to collaborate on their 25th Anniversary mural,” says Curator of Education Jared Steffen. “UMOCA and Squatters have had a great partnership over the years, and since both have a commitment to showcasing and serving our community, it’s natural fit.”

Mural painting will begin Saturday, June 28th and will be completed over the 4th of July weekend. The public is invited to vote for their favorite art piece and the winning mural will be featured on the beer label for a limited edition 25th Anniversary brew and 25th Anniversary Squatters t-shirt. Voting will be available at the Pub and also on both UMOCA and Squatters Facebook fan pages.

UMOCA and Squatters would like to thank Layton Construction for their generous donations of supplies and equipment.
