The Gateway, Utah’s premier community gathering, dining and entertainment destination, has come up with a fun way to welcome spring with art, all while staying safe and acting responsibly. The Drive-Thru Art Stroll starts in conjunction with the regular Salt Lake Gallery Stroll on April 17, 2020 but goes on all month long to encourage people to spread out and take their time seeing it. The Drive-Thru Art Stroll offers a map to come check out the new spring Art Shop windows and Utah beehive crosswalks (we’re all in this together) located on the corner of Rio Grande Street and 100 South as well as a roadmap of the great dining options still open for curbside take-out. It’s fun for the whole family.
It’s their mission to bring vibrancy and art to the public and to dress up The Gateway for the spring. The Drive-Thru Art Stroll art offerings include the Ombre Stairs, the Urban Arts Gallery, Transitions by Robyn Briggs and Jessica Hernandez, The Butterfly Effect by LK Artist, Clouds Be A Rainbow by Amy K, Beehive Crosswalks, Desert Oasis by Douglas Tolman and Alex Bang, Hope Springs Eternal by Laura Ashby, Fungus Among Us by Kaycee Lane, and the iconic new Queens of Music cubes located at the Olympic Legacy Fountain. The public can also view Art Shop Artists and purchase any of the works they have available here.
It’s simple. You can check out the drive-thru Art Map, then head to The Gateway to check out the spring Art Shop windows from the comfort and safe distance of your car. You can order online or call for some delicious curbside dinner and dessert options at the great dining options including: HallPass, Chedda Burger, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, Sweet Rolled Tacos or The Store Fine Foods & Deli.
“The Gateway has invested in adding art to our center because we know it’s an invaluable source of inspiration. And because a lot of us are in need of some inspiration right now, we are inviting people to schedule some time to come down and walk, bike (while keeping the necessary distance) or drive-thru the center,” said Jacklyn Briggs, marketing director for The Gateway. “It’s our way of showing solidarity and support to these tremendous partners. Check out all the murals as well as the pop-up art shop windows from local artists. Then if you see something you like, you can support those artists by shopping virtually. Stay creative, stay positive, stay hopeful and we’ll see you at The Gateway soon.”
