Kimball honors Park City artist Amici
Ryan Summerlin October 11, 2013
The Kimball Art Center, 638 Park Ave., is celebrating the life and art of Michael Amici Jr., a Park City resident who was the first student to be accepted into the center’s Relevant artist-in-residence program in 2010.
Sadly, Amici took his own life on Aug. 5.
His works are on display at the Garage Gallery through Sunday, Oct. 13.
Amici, who was born with Asperger syndrome, which made it difficult to communicate, discovered art that helped him reach out to people.
All sales of Amici’s art will go towards a scholarship in his name that will allow students from Holy Cross Ministry to take art classes at the Kimball Art Center.
Amici’s family members wanted this to be their way to contribute to the center’s mission of sharing art to the community and also pay tribute to their son.
