Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum Atrium Project:The Sky’s The Limit

May 25, 2021—  Salt Lake City, Utah— Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum has redesigned its public museum entrance with an artful interactive exhibit entitled “The Sky’s the Limit” which is now open to the public thanks to being awarded The Utah Division of Arts and Museums’ Phase II Create in Utah Grant. This grant of $351,500 funded the revitalization of the museum’s public atrium.

“We are grateful for this grant because it enabled us to reimagine and install a fun interactive exhibit into our public space. Now everyone has the opportunity to experience a taste of our museum in this public atrium,” said Kathleen Bodenlos, CEO,Executive Director. 

The atrium project includes a colorful floor mural depicting Utah’s seasons and water cycle designed by local artist Zac Campbell, musical piano stairs that play notes when climbed, clouds that illuminate and change colors when you pass by designed by Red Flower Studio and a space for photo opportunities for the enjoyment of children and adults alike.

This project is funded in part by the CARES Act and the Utah State Legislature through Utah Arts & Museums. Thanks to this sponsorship, Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum events can now be found on both and Now Playing Utah (NPU) offers a current arts and cultural calendar created to benefit the arts community as well as Utahns interested in attending local cultural events.
