Restoring our "Sure Foundation"

If there is one question we get asked more than anything, its "What did this building used to be?" Near the turn of the century, Salt Lake City began demonstrating an all new diversity of religious faiths. Nearly every corner along 200 South was marked with a different denomination's building on each corner. Here, on the corner of 200 South and 400   East, the Baptist Church built up their new home with the Immanuel Baptist Church. Some 110 years later, the building has served a number of purposes. When the Baptist Church left and moved up the hill to 1300 East,...

An Historically Important Work by Mahonri Young Resurfaces

Titled simply “Vaudeville” this painting by Mahonri Young (1877-1957) tells the story of a pivotalmoment in Utah history and art. It reveals the vibrant culture in Salt Lake City as experienced and recorded by two of Utah’s most important artists, at the beginning of their careers.  The writing on the reverse provides the context. In black ink, on near the top it reads:  “Painted in Salt Lake City in 1906. The panel was owned by AB Wight. Mahonri Young.” The script unmistakably belongs to Mahonri Young.
