Private Tours of Major Public & Private Collections for the Friends of Anthony's Fine Art
Each month, between now and October, we use long-established relationships to hold private tours of some of Salt Lake's most important collections of art. Dr. Micah Christensen (PhD, History of Art, University College London) will take small groups of friends and clients of Anthony’s Fine Art on a 60 to 90-minute tour, discussing the history of each collection and key works.
Space is limited. To reserve places for yourself and friends, please send an email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 801.328.2231
SALT LAKE MASONIC TEMPLE | May 3, 6-7:30 PM
Completed in 1927, the historic Masonic lodge on South Temple is rarely open to the public. Yet, it contains hundreds of artistic treasures — paintings and sculptures by local and nationally renowned artists.
UTAH STATE CAPITOL | June 7, 6-7:30 PM
We have arranged to take a private tour of the chambers of the Legislature, Supreme Court, and private offices, which contain works depicting the history and landscape of Utah from the state's vast and important collection.
ZIONS BANK | July 12, 6-7:30 PM
As Utah’s first bank, Zions has long been dedicated to patronizing and showing works by contemporary LDS artists. Bank President, Scott Anderson, has given us permission to have an after-hours private tour of the bank’s collection.
LDS CONFERENCE CENTER | August 2, 6-7:30 PM
Although not an official museum, the LDS Conference center is the home to many of the Church’s monumental works of art, including paintings by Arnold Friberg, Tom Lovell, Minerva Teichert, Walter Rane, and portraits of leaders of the Church. We have arranged to lead our own special tour, which is usually headed by volunteer missionaries.
UTAH MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS | September 6, 6-7:30 PM
Closed for renovations for more than a year, we will be leading one of the first tours as it opens to the public. Join us as we tour the permanent collection of one of the region’s most important collections.
HUNTSMAN CANCER INSTITUTE | October 4, 6-7:30 PM
Few know that the research hospital displays one of the most important and largest collections of early Utah art, with large works by pioneer artists like CCA Christensen, Danquart Weggeland and major pieces by JT Harwood and John Hafen. We have convinced the institution to allow us to bring a small group of people to tour public and private spaces where masterworks are hung.
