The Salt Lake City Main Library sits directly across the street from the Salt Lake City County Building that I shared in another post…while the library building seems to evoke a sense of peace and appears to be a wonderful place to sit and read a book or two, it has a rather grim history. Check-out the article from Wikipedia for more information.
A few months ago, I shared this photograph in my post “In the Heart of the City.”
What I didn’t know at the time, was that there is an alley-way at the bottom of this large sacred-heart mural that leads to a street-artists’ den. Imagine my surprise…
I have presented the photos in the order in which you would encounter the art-work as you entered the alley. The work is on the right-hand wall and continues for almost an entire 360 degrees as you pass into and back out of the alley. Hopefully that makes sense. I think you’ll be able to follow the works, as many of the photos will contain pieces or edges of the neighboring images. This is a longer post, but there were many images to capture and share. I hope you enjoy them.
This is Dakota. He said it was ok for me to take photos of the alley-way and explained that this is not a formal gallery, but just a collection of work from some local graffiti/street-art artists.
