Since 1998 once the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center opened up, we've been proud partners using the Park City School District. From student outreach possibilities to becoming the anchor facility from the Sundance Film Festival, we've labored together to make sure this unique building was fully and fairly utilized. We've welcomed entertainers from around the world and also the finest Utah entertainers. Our after-school technical theater program has offered like a lifeline for college students who may never appear while watching curtain, to understand how everything work back of house. We're honored to possess been partners within the citywide evening, Save Our Snow, addressing global climate issues.
But, there is always Something missing.
The gorgeous, condition from the art building didn't have Two Somethings, because it switched out. We're fortunate beyond measure to possess a very generous donor with a good eye. It absolutely was apparent for this donor for sometime, that to accomplish the statement of who we're and just what we provide, needed Something to represent a feeling of elegance and excitement and delightful talent.
This donor approached us and introduced us towards the bronze artists, Bob &lifier Jo Wilfong of Henderson, Nevada, who then produced two bronze sculptures for that Center.
The very first, outdoors, “Dance of affection, Dance of Life” features two ballroom dancers inside a freeform movement.
Inside, the bigger than existence “Rock Star” reaches towards the clouds beneath the skylight. Such as the proverbial icing around the cake, both of these pieces, installed with giant cranes and far planning, completed the area.
The contributor, when requested why they made a decision to gift Something so effective and glorious, anonymously towards the community, clarified, simply, for him or her. For that enjoyment that belongs to them children and grandchildren in the future. For future decades of kids.
And, we suspect, to inspire the kid within all of us.
