In keeping with its commitment to support local artists and small businesses, Zions Bank hosted its 21st annual art show last November, where more than 3,500 clients appreciated beautiful artwork, lively entertainment, delicious appetizers and desserts, and attractive flowers at the Zions Bank Building in downtown Salt Lake City.

While hundreds of artists applied to be featured in the Zions Bank Art Show, only 70 made the cut. The artists displayed handcrafted pieces ranging from paint and watercolor works to photography, ceramics and sculpture. Hundreds of clients bought artwork at the event while enjoying light refreshments and entertainment.

Six musician groups, including the Utah Chinese Folk Orchestra and the String Elegance Trio, favored guests with a variety of musical styles. Five caterers provided mouthwatering appetizers and desserts amid impressive flower displays from Every Blooming Thing and Flowers Squared.

In addition, Swanavation Ice Sculptures created a stunning carving of the Zions Bank logo against a backdrop of downtown Salt Lake City buildings.

“Zions Bank is committed to supporting local businesses, which are the lifeblood of our communities,” says Zions Bank President and CEO Scott Anderson. “I’m pleased to see so many guests also supporting these local artists, caterers, musicians and florists.”
