Celebrate Art This Thursday at The Kimball Art Center Gala

When it comes to Utah matches made in heaven, nothing goes together quite like Park City and Redford.

So, Sibylle Szaggars Redford’s exhibit at Kimball Art Center makes perfect sense. And what makes even more sense? A performance piece created by the wife-of-Bob performed live at The Kimball’s annual gala this Thursday, August 4. According to the gala’s website: “The Way of the Rain is a live multidisciplinary art performance that invites the audience to remember their physical and spiritual connection to our planet’s beauty and plight.”

What does that mean, exactly? Well, Szaggars Redford has assembled a group of musicians (Will Calhoun, Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer), a tap dancer (Andrew Nemr), and her husband (ahem, Robert Redford)—billed as a special guest—to perform a combination of music, visual art, spoken word, film, light and dance.

In addition to handful of performances across the country, it was performed at Sundance 2015 and has a nonprofit dedicated to its mission.

The gala has more to offer than just Park City’s first couple, though. Guests will enjoy a seated dinner and a cocktail hour. It will be hosted on the lawn of The Kimball and it is recommended that guests wear cocktail attire, bring a light jacket and sport sensible shoes and it begins at 6 pm. There are tickets still available here, at $350 each.
