{slc} gilgal sculptures

June 7, 2016

In one of those explore Salt Lake City guide books, it stated that the Gigal Sculpture Garden is a local gem. Now, I can’t attest to or against that statement since I’m not a local, but this place certainly is quite interesting and quite hidden in the middle of a cluster of homes and businesses.

According to their website, “Gilgal Sculpture Garden was envisioned, designed and created by Thomas Battersby Child, Jr. in the mid-twentieth century.” This “Utah visionary art environment” includes 12 original sculptures and over 70 stones engraved with scriptures, poems, and literary texts. These are all related to Child’s deep faith and reflect he thought about the Church of Latter-Day Saints. He acknowledges that not everyone agrees with him, but hopes that this strange little place inspires curiosity and thinking. Well, for sure it does that … what a weird place!
