Kimball Art Center

Park City Municipal

The long-awaited Park City Arts and Culture District was the topic of Wednesday’s roundtable discussion with city government.

 

Park City purchased the five-acre parcel of land at the corner of Kearns Boulevard and Bonanza Drive back in 2017 and officials say despite complications due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, plans are on schedule.

With too many details to work out and too little time, the Kimball Art Center cancelled this year’s Arts Festival.

Event organizers met with the Park City Council last week to see if there was a way that the festival could be held on a smaller scale and would keep artists and the public safe. While council members expressed concern, they seemed willing to move forward with the idea if it could be done safely.

Aldy Milliken

After a national search, the Kimball Art Center’s Board of Directors has named Aldy Milliken to serve as the new Executive Director. He takes over from Jory McOmber who left the center late last year.

Born in Boston, Milliken earned a Fine Art degree from Lewis and Clark College in Portland Oregon. He then moved overseas, living in Indonesia and Hungary, before spending 15 years in Stockholm, Sweden where he operated a contemporary art gallery.

Most recently, for the last eight years, he has served as the Executive Director for KMAC Museum in Louisville, Kentucky.

After a test run this year “freeing the fest” for Summit County residents, the Kimball Arts Festival is looking to remove admission fees for all attendees for next year’s festival. 

The Executive Director for the Kimball Arts Center has announced he’s leaving that position.    Jory Macomber headed up the Kimball for the past two years.

Macomber has been director of the Art Center since early 2018.   In an e-mail sent to Kimball Art Center members, Macomber said he came to a difficult decision to leave a dynamic and growing organization.
