Meet the Sponsor: The Gateway

By Deborah Lindner, Festival Organizer

The Gateway has been both the venue and a valuable partner ever since Utah Foster Care’s first Chalk Art Festival took to the streets, back in 2003.

Back then, we did everything we could to attract artists to our new event. Now, street painters of every age flock to this annual community art event.

The Gateway has proven itself as a premiere destination for the festival, closing its main artery, Rio Grande Street, to provide the canvas on which artists toil away to create the vibrant works of art that visitors can enjoy – for free!

We thank the management and marketing team at The Gateway, as well as its parent company Vestar, for years of support of both Utah’s foster care community and public arts.
