The Gene Nelson Attic is the Provo City Library's large exhibit space. We are dedicated to bringing in art, science, and history exhibits from around the country.
The Attic is located on the 4th floor of the Academy Wing of the Library, accessible only by elevator. Use the elevator at the West end of the building.
The Anderson Art Gallery is dedicated to showcasing the best local art our community has to offer. This gallery is located on the Second Floor of the Academy Building, Room #220.
When it comes to art, there aren’t a lot of universals. Each artist takes an individualized approach to choosing their medium and style. So when I approached a group of local professional artists to show some work in this space, I struggled to find a theme that would tie it all together.
But I work at a library, and we’re all about words. And as I looked at this diverse body of work, I realized that one thing is universal: they’re all about nouns. People, places, things, ideas: these are the things we make art about, and though the form of representation is unique, the subject matter comes down to these four things. The most meaningful things in our lives are nouns, and it’s nouns that we return to in our art.
This show features art by James Rees, Javicci, Laura Erekson, Stephanie Hock, Abigale Palmer, Beki Tobiasson, Mike Whiting & Amanda Jane Jones, and Izzi Ballstaedt.
Please enjoy this eclectic collection of nouns. - Erika Hill, Community Relations Manager
