Story Wall

Located in the central area of the Gallivan Center, artwork appropriately titled, “Story Wall”, consists of two sections of bronze plates, engraved with Utah’s tribal legends, from the Ute, Paiute, Goshute, and Shoshone. The first section is made up of 56 plates. The second section consists of 21 plates that span across a bridge. These bronze plates are fitted side by side along a half wall surrounding a sunken grassy area on two sides. From a distance, it is hard to discern that this is more than just a bronze wall. As you get closer, and depending on the light, it becomes clear that the wall is full of engraved words.
