Zions Bank is sponsoring an all-new exhibit that is traveling to branch locations throughout Utah. It will be at the Price location on Carbon Avenue through May. Celebrating the state's rich heritage, "The Utah Story: A World Within a State" is a project developed by the Utah Cultural Center. This collaborative exhibit features treasures from three partnering agencies: the Utah State Historical Society, Utah Arts Council and Utah State Archives.

"The Utah Story" exhibit was kicked off in Price April 29 with a reception and will be on display through May 29th. The free exhibit is open to the public during the bank's regular hours.

"Zions Bank's support of "The Utah Story" demonstrates our commitment to the local community and our shared cultural experiences," said Erroll Holt, manager of Zion's Bank's Price office. At the opening ceremonies he added, "The exhibit gives us a better understanding of where we came from and how we are shaped today."

"The Utah Story" uses archival materials and artifacts to chronicle the experiences of diverse peoples. From the early pioneers and the tragic victims of the Scofield mine disaster to a contemporary Navajo artist, the exhibit presents history through many points of view in a spirit of sharing, seeking and understanding. According to Rebecca Batt, Utah Cultural Center Foundation director, "It's a tremendous opportunity for Utahns to explore unique photographs, artwork, documents and artifacts they may not have been able to access in the past."

The traveling exhibit illustrates just a sampling of stories brought to life through the collections of the Utah State Historical Society, Utah Arts Council and Utah State Archives. Ultimately, the agencies hope to create a Utah Cultural Center museum to showcase their rich historic and cultural resources for the public.

"The Utah Story: A World Within a State" was funded in parts by grants from the Utah Office of Museum Services, through a generous allocation by the Utah State Legislature, and Zions Bank.
