Major Gordon Huether Art Installations at the New Salt Lake City International Airport
Gordon Huether Studio is excited to announce its largest and most significant commission to date.
Gordon Huether and his team have been selected to work with the Salt Lake City Department of Airports in meeting the goals of the Airport Redevelopment Program at Salt Lake City International Airport, which includes a comprehensive art master plan. The brand new state-of-the-art main terminal and north concourse, currently the second largest construction project in the United States, will showcase Huether’s art throughout.
The artist’s most magnificent and largest art installation entitled “The Canyon,” and will be integrated on both walls (East and West) of the new central airport terminal. “The Canyon” evokes the Salt Lake City landscape and spans 362 feet, the length of 1.2 football fields, using more than 2 acres of composite fabric, and the equivalent of eight miles of aluminum tubing. The entire work will consist of almost 800 individual parts!
Gordon Huether Studio will create a number of other art installations throughout the Terminal, as well as curate the Salt Lake City Department of Airport’s fine art collection and assist in public art opportunities.

Park City lies east of Salt Lake City in the western state of Utah. Framed by the craggy Wasatch Range, it’s bordered by the Deer Valley Resort and the huge Park City Mountain Resort, both known for their ski slopes. Utah Olympic Park, to the north, hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics and is now predominantly a training facility. In town, Main Street is lined with buildings built during a 19th-century silver mining boom.
Park City is a wonderful place to visit throughout the year with fabulous dining and recreation options. Long before Park City became a world class mountain resort and venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, it was famous as a silver mining town, and boasts a lively and colorful past. Founded by prospectors in the late 1860's, Park City continued to mine silver until the early 1970's.
From approximately 1850, when small settlements were forming, until the railroad lines were laid throughout the West in the 1890s, stagecoach travel was the main form of transportation. There was even a stagecoach business in Park City! William Kimball, a Park City resident, started his stagecoach business in 1858 competing with Brigham Young for United States mail contracts. He was sent to England on a Mormon Church mission and when he returned, he started the Park City-Salt Lake City Route. The Kimball Brothers Stage Line operated from 1872 until 1890, when the railroad made its way into the West. Moving quicker as well as transporting more people and mail, the railroad easily put the stagecoach out of business.
Between 1880 and 1920 when Park City mines were the most organized, productive and active, they produced more than 20 million tons of ore including lead, zinc, copper, silver, and a small amount of gold. These were the years of Park City's mining renaissance. The mining company, Park City Consolidated Mines, started the ski business in 1963, when they built the first lifts on what was then called Treasure Mountain. The Park City area now has three world class resorts: Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley Resort, and the Canyons Resort.
Park City has a year-round free city-wide transit system. The bus routes connects Historic Main Street, Kimball Junction, Prospector, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Village. Traveling with skis or snowboards on public transit is not a problem. Parking at the resorts is free; however, the lots fill up early in the morning. On the weekends, patrons of Park City Mountain can park at the Park City High School on Kearns Blvd and take the complimentary resort shuttle to the Park City Base Area. The majority of parking in the Historic Main Street area is paid.

Utah's Spiral Jetty - An artist's work on nature's canvas
The Spiral Jetty was constructed in 1970 on the bed of the Great Salt Lake. The earthwork art by Robert Smithson has only been fully visible for a third of its life due to high water levels. It is well worth the 2 1/2-drive from Salt Lake City past the Golden Spike National Historic Site in Box Elder County. Part of the Utah Bucket List series from KUED and The Salt Lake Tribune:

Fun Free Things To Do In Provo
Provo “Welcome Home” is the third largest city in Utah and it is consistently recognized as one of the best places to live, work and play in the United States.
Bridal Veil Falls: Bridal Veil Falls is a 600-foot-tall waterfall nestled in the southern end of Provo Canyon. Easily reached by car or by trail on a bike or by foot. The best way to see Bridal Veil Falls is going to Bridal Veil Falls State Park. This spacious recreational area sits about 3.5 miles away from the entrance to Provo Canyon and has picnic tables, a paved pathway, and barbecue grills. There is a scenic walkway that passes in front of the waterfall. Great for kids and adults.
Museum of Peoples and Cultures: he Museum of Peoples and Cultures at Brigham Young University houses anthropological, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts from past and present times. Located on BYU campus, the goal of the museum is to inspire BYU students and the public toward an understanding of and appreciation for people from around the world.
Brigham Young University Museum of Art: This is one of my favorite. I used to go here at least once a month when I lived in Provo because the exhibits were constantly rotating. It’s home to ten exhibition galleries, classrooms, an auditorium, a gift shop, and a theater.
Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum. My husband has been going here since he was a kid and it is my daughters favorite museum in Provo. the museum contains a vast collection of plants and taxidermied animals. Each exhibit aims to educate the public about the bodies and behaviors of animals as well as ways for people to protect the environment. They also have live programs.
Hike the Y. An easy albeit steep trail runs from the east side of Provo up to the block Y on the mountain. It is a very popular hike for college students and families. From the Y you get great views of the Provo area and Utah Lake. I love this hike and have done it numerous times. Last time my husband went out of town though I tried to do it by myself with the two kids by myself and my daughter would have none of it. We didn’t even make it out of sight of the parking lot. At least it was a pretty day and we grabbed ice cream after at Mora Iced Creamery
Okay this one is not technically in Provo but excuse the liberty I am taking by suggesting you go see Roots of Knowledge is a permanent stained glass display completed in 2016 at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah, United States. The creation of the exhibit was designed and overseen by stained glass artists Tom Holdman and Cameron Oscarson. It took over 12 years and cost US$4.5 million to complete. Honestly if you are anywhere NEAR you Utah you should come see this. I have gone over a dozen times by myself, with people from out of town and with my family. I will continue to go every chance I get. Each time you see something different and miraculous.
Well there you have it. Thank you for watching our adventure. Now go out there, make your own and tell me all about it. Until next time. Keep traveling.

Steve Weller – Ephraim, UT
Steve Weller is a middle school English teacher and college Instructor with a love for laughter. When he’s not teaching classes and wrestling with his kids he finds time for the occasional mural or caricature sketch.

With four self-published books, regular published space in newspapers, multiple features on national education websites and nearly 20,000 followers on Facebook and Instagram, maybe it’s time to really get serious with this whole art thing.

Joe Bennion – Spring City, UT
I enjoy making pottery by hand on a foot powered treadle wheel. The physical involvement places me deeper in the process. The gentle sound of the wheel and the soft resistance of the clay in my hand are at once comforting and pleasant. Pleasure is an important element of our life in this world. It gives meaning and balance to the confusion, pain and sorrow we encounter here. I hope that as people take my pottery in hand and raise it to their lips they will recognize some the experience I have had in making it and will find pleasure of their own in use.
I am fascinated with the idea that we are the children of a benevolent creator. The influences that most powerfully shape who we are seem to be located in the household and family. I want my pottery to be there and to promote and influence that growth, however small it's part may be. The family dinner table is sacred space and the venue of first choice for my pottery.
I prefer domestic pottery that is plain, quiet and understated. I try to make pots that will play in the background, that speak gently but carry a great deal of information to those willing to wait and listen. I love the kinds of surfaces derived from wood firing and salt glazing processes. In the case of the wood fired kiln I also enjoy the deeper involvement with process that the stoking of the kiln affords me. I love to sit with a kiln late at night and listen to the wood popping and the quiet sounds of the draft.
Because of my decision to make quiet pottery I have had to leave the more public sales venues of street fairs, shops and galleries and sell my pottery at home where it is made. Somehow that environment shows my work to best advantage. I live and work in small Mormon farming village in the mountains of central Utah. Over the past ten years I have shifted my marketing to bring people to my door rather than sending the work out. This seems to work best and it feels right to me.

Fine Art TV Series - Colour In Your Life
Season - 18
Episode - 10
Filmed on Location at - Utah, USA
Deena Riley Millecam was born in Salt Lake City to Howard and Shirley Riley. She is the oldest of five children. Her family later moved to Payson, Utah where she grew up on a fruit farm. Her appreciation to her mother and father for teaching her how to work extends to the education field later on in her life.
Upon graduating from Utah State with a Bachelor of Education in Fine Arts, she taught at Vernal Junior High. Receiving her Masters of Education through the University of Utah, she became an administrator working several positions within the Uintah School District. Upon retiring, she has furthered her studies in art with many wonderful artists. Giving credit for their skills of teaching, she has appreciated all the opportunities to attend workshops.
Showing in several galleries, Deena Millecam has painted with many national and local artists.
Her love of watercolor in many different settings shows her enthusiasm for the media. Oil painting is now another learning experience as she takes classes. She would like to further her work in portraiture and figurative subjects.
She married her best friend, the late John Millecam. Deena lives in Vernal, Utah and also has a home in St. George. Seven children and nineteen grandchildren bring many adventures as she attends soccer tournaments, races, art and sewing exhibits, plays, and school activities.
Deena Millecam's father, the late Howard Riley, has been her inspiration. She moved to St. George to take art classes and paint with him. However, he passed away shortly after she moved. And of course her devoted Mother, Shirley Roberts Riley, always sees a need for 'one more brush stroke' on a finished painting.
You can contact Deena Millecam about her art tips or art techniques directly via her website at
