WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Art and culture thrive in Utah, in part because of West Valley’s Cultural Celebration Center, which turns 20 this year. 

West Valley City founded the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in 2003. Since then, it has become a venue for art exhibits, community celebrations, concerts, educational programs, and more.

“The mission is to celebrate art, culture and community in the city of West Valley and support everyone in Salt Lake County as well as Utah,”  West Valley Marketing Communications Coordinator Laurel Romero told Dave and Dujanovic.

Romero said citizens of West Valley have always been extremely supportive of the center and the arts.

“When we host our events, the community always comes out and supports us and is there, seeing our events.”

The center is not only a venue for art, but also has education programs, exhibition events for local artists, and concerts.

“It was a place for the community to get together and celebrate different events,” Romero said.

The center is currently featuring an alchemy transmutations exhibit which is free to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays.
