Park City Arts Festival

The Kimball Art Center awarded its Best in Show honors Sunday afternoon. The Best in Show Winners are presented for each of the 12 mediums in the competition.

The winners were chosen by a 5-person jury, made up of collectors and art world professionals, who anonymously reviewed artists’ work, and submitted their scoring by Saturday evening of the festival. This year’s festival – the 48th annual - featured 60 new artists out of the more than 220 participants.
