Creativity plays a major role in Salt Lake's thriving culture. From painters who specialize in traditional fine arts to local crafters who work with reclaimed materials, there’s an incredibly diverse range of talent to be found. Even if you don’t consider yourself an art buff, there’s an experience that’s sure to inspire (or at the very least, dazzle) you. In Salt Lake, you don’t just observe art, you experience it. Bring an open mind, embrace new points of view and find new ways to join in on the creativity!

Supporting local artists has never been easier—or more fun. Markets like Salt and Honey Makers Market are a popular way to dive into the arts scene. Salt and Honey is a collective retail experience that hosts goods from Utah creators. Handcrafted jewelry, fragrant candles, photographs, and even coffee from Salt Lake roasters, are just a few examples of goods available to buy. Some vendors even offer curated collections of vintage clothing and accessories, ensuring your finds are one-of-a-kind, and of course, very fashionable. Salt and Honey has three locations, all of which offer different assortments of arts and crafts for purchase. One of the great things about markets like Salt and Honey is that no two visits will ever be the same. New items and art pieces that can only be found in Salt Lake are constantly arriving in the store. We admit it's nearly impossible to stick to window shopping when there are so many unique and incredible creations you can take home.

While makers markets are great for all ages, Salt Lake museums offer another interactive experience for the whole family. Discovery Gateway Children's Museum was designed to keep the little ones engaged and excited about art and science. Children can play, create and learn at the same time. One popular exhibit is called Honey Climber. Here, children live the life of a busy bee climbing and buzzing through a maze of honeycombs, flowers and other obstacles. This exhibit epitomizes the interactive learning experience on which the museum prides itself. From making your own comic strip to learning about STEM, creativity (and kids) are unleashed at Discovery Gateway.

Salt Lake's art scene continues to evolve, but one thing will never change: everyone is welcome. Artists are welcome to join in.
