The public is welcome and encouraged to join us for the Sesquicentennial Celebration at Promontory Summit. However, space is limited as we expect to celebrate with more than 10,000 visitors on May 10th. In order to facilitate parking adjacent to the site and help offset the costs of programming, we are offering tickets to the public. We have tried to make the tickets as affordable as possible to ensure everyone can attend. 

Tickets can be purchased online at www.spike150.org/events/. The second block of tickets for May 10th will be available on April 1 at 10:00 am. Tickets for May 11 and 12 are still available.


Attendees must purchase a parking ticket in advance of the event.

Visual Artist; UDAM Teaching Artist | I have been creating my assemblage-collage style works since 1992. These I develop from a variety of materials: urban cast-offs, kitchen utensils, tin cans, or children’s doll parts; often more unusual, eclectic, or even collectible items such as old boxes, jewelry, old advertising and memorabilia. By combining, juxtaposing and redefining ordinary objects and cultural icons, I hope to initiate a visual conversation with the viewer..
