Now, while waiting for public transportation, South Salt Lake City commuters can contemplate public art, thanks to the creative work and learning experiences of seven University of Utah painting and drawing students. Nearby 2100 S. and the 3300 S.

Historic buildings of the surrounding area-the Century Theater, Harmon’s Kentucky Fried Chicken and some that no longer exist-are painted in the background.
