Patiently Waiting


Standing 12 feet tall, Ethnic Man (1991) spent several lonely months watching over the silent and still Utah Museum of Fine Arts after it temporarily closed its doors in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. A favorite in the museum’s collection, this massive sculpture was created by Viola Frey (1933-2004), a ceramic artist who looked beyond the traditional small scale of that artform. Ethnic Man and hundreds of other stunning artworks are waiting to be rediscovered and enjoyed again by museum guests (check umfa.utah.edu for opening updates and for free virtual arts programs).
