Harvest Days originated in 1938 with support of the Midvale Kiwanis Club and has been an annual tradition residents look forward to in celebration of the city’s unique history and heritage. This year was also a chance for people to enjoy art, both for the ear and the eye.
The 2018 events kicked off with a series of neighborhood block parties and came to a close with the sounds of the Bellamy Brothers and a fireworks display over Midvale City Park.
Several additional events were held throughout the week, including the Arts Council Art Show at the Midvale Performing Arts Center. The Visual and Literary Arts Show showcased art and artists of every level from Midvale and the surrounding communities, offering opportunities for artists of nearly all media formats to display their work.
The exhibit included artwork in seven art mediums: Traditional Media Arts, Electronic Media Arts, Heirloom Arts, Three Dimensional Arts, Literary Arts, Children’s Art, and Special Needs Artists. The Midvale Arts Council received a total of 76 entries, with highlights including a traditional charcoal portrait titled, “Gus,” created by Randy Morris, who received the Best of Show award.
