9/2/11: Painter Douglas Snow

Salt Lake City, Utah – Most of us know the paintings of the artist Douglas Snow through his public installations - at the airport and the lobby of the Pioneer Theatre. 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 in 2009 and a retrospective of his work has just opened in Salt Lake City. Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with him about his connection to place. (Rebroadcast)

Final Light: V. Douglas Snow in Retrospect is a joint exhibit of the Utah Museum of Fine Arts and the Salt Lake Art Center. Snow's work will remain on display through January 8 at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts and through October 22 at the Salt Art Center.
