June 2017 Resident On Display: Kenneth Hartvigsen
Kenneth Hartvigsen grew up in Salt Lake City and graduated from the University of Utah before earning a PhD in art history from Boston University. He has taught art history courses at Weber State University, Westminster College, and Brigham Young University, where he is now the Curator of American Art at the BYU Museum of Art.
Kenneth's drawings and paintings are related to his lifelong interest in narrative art and illustration. His work asks the viewer to consider how a picture and its title work together in creating meaning, if they do at all.
He lives in Murray with his wife, Emily, and their daughter Alina. He would like to thank the Murray City Arts Council and the Murray City, Residents on Display program for this opportunity.
