Salt Lake City “City Library”

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.

City Paint 4 – Tucked-Away Alley-Way

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.
