10/23/09: Painter Douglas Snow

Doug Snow's \"Capitol Reef\" hangs in the Scott M. Matheson Courthouse in Salt Lake City. Since 2001 it has been draped following complaints from judges and attorneys about the piece.

By Doug Fabrizio

His pieces are often shocking when you first come upon them and they prompt a strong reaction. That reaction must have delighted Snow, who never created his works to simply blend in. Doug Snow died this week at the age of 82, and Friday, we're rebroadcasting our 2004 conversation with him about his connection to place.
