2018 Alfred Lambourne Prize Open for Submissions

21 March 2018 Published in News & Events

FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake is accepting artistic representations of Great Salt Lake in the categories of visual art, literary art, sound, and movement for consideration for the 5th annual Alfred Lambourne Prize. The Alfred Lambourne Arts Program celebrates the relationship between local artists and our Inland Sea. Through art, we are able to enhance our understanding of Great Salt Lake and build awareness about our need to preserve and protect it. 

This year, we will offer $500 prizes to winners in each of the four artistic categories (visual art, literary art, sound, and movement). Finalists in each category will be invited to display and/or perform their work during the gallery opening and reception on September 7, 2018 at the Sorenson Unity Center Gallery and Blackbox Theatre.

Why We Care

  • To travelers so long shut among the mountain ranges a sudden view over the expanse of silent waters had in it something sublime. Several large islands raised their rocky heads out of the waves. . . . Then, a storm burst down with sudden fury upon the lake, and entirely hid the islands from our view.

    John C. Fremont, Report of the Exploring Expedition to the Rocky Mountains, 1845
