January News & Updates
Dear Valued Members & Supporters,

2015 was an eventful year for us as we hosted the 46th Annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival on Main Street, celebrated our Grand Opening at 1401 Kearns Boulevard and were proud participants in Vail's EpicPromise Chairs For Charity community fundraiser.

2016 will bring 6 phenomenal exhibitions to the Kimball as well as an increase in our offerings regarding both art classes and art education programs.  Our new Ceramics Studio and fine food from Uptown Fare will both open this month as well.

Our mission of serving the community is not something that we take lightly.  We sincerely hope that you'll join us throughout the New Year and provide us with feedback as to our progress.

With gratitude,

Robin Marrouche 
Executive Director

The Kimball would like to extend a very sincere thank you to R. Nelson Parrish ( for having designed both our chair and color-coordinated Soul Poles (

Is It Lonely to be a Four-Leaf Clover?
It is about the idea of being separated for something good. A dandelion, by example, teaches the clover to be bold. 

Too Hard For You
This is the story of the Kilimanjaro climb and the question of what if everyone told you that it was too hard for you. As we know, I made it to the top of the mountain, from which I can see a world of things that are too hard for me too.

Beverly Joubert's work is a call to action. Big cats, rhinoceros, and elephants are in crisis, facing extinction after years of rampant poaching and habitat loss. As artists, conservationists, and National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence, Beverly and husband, Dereck Joubert, have spent decades fighting for these beloved creatures.  Through their internationally renowned wildlife films and other conservation efforts, the Jouberts celebrate the stunning beauty and power of these animals, urging viewers to recognize the consequences of inaction.

With stories of this fight for survival, Beverly Joubert's photographs demonstrate the artist's deep compassion for her subjects. Her work at the Kimball Art Center is accompanied by thoughts, lessons, and illuminations by the Jouberts of their 30 year journey with some of the worlds' most remarkable wildlife.
