Exhibit runs Sep 10–Oct 19

There is something so beautiful and powerful about the way people connect with places. A mere thought of a specific location can evoke vivid memories and transport someone to a realm of reflective remembrance. Wing’s work explores geographically capturing urban cities and places of significance to those that have made memories there.

Emilia Wing is a Polish-Canadian artist based in Salt Lake City. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a BFA in Studio Art. Following her love of teaching, she went on to pursue a MA in Art Education at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Following her studies, Emilia worked as a high school art and photography teacher in Washington, DC. She later moved to London, England where she taught fine art at a private school. Her career also brought her to Russia where she worked in museums in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Additionally, Emilia has been involved in many volunteer and community programs including non-profit art initiatives and extra-curricular art programs.

Emilia's art is inspired by where she has lived and where she is from. Her oil paintings of maps and aerial views depict layers of meaningful experimentation of color, texture, and a mix of both organic and geometric forms. She also loves playing with light and reflection using gold, silver, and copper leaf in her recent works because she feels it adds the life and movement that she associates with the places she paints.

About the library

The Salt Lake City Public Library's Marmalade Branch is the anchor of a mixed-use project developed as a key part of the Redevelopment Agency (RDA) of Salt Lake City's master plan for the Marmalade/West Capitol Hill area of the city. The neighborhood serves as a gateway to Salt Lake City from the north, and the Marmalade Branch is both a hub for neighborhood gatherings and an important welcome for visitors, highlighting a focus on development in the area. On-street parking is available on 500 North and 300 West, and UTA routes offer service with stops immediately in front of the Library on 300 West.

The two-story Marmalade Branch, designed by Blalock & Partners Architectural Design Studio and completed in early 2016, provides 18,600 square feet of new construction to support a thriving and growing community. The first floor includes the Moka Cafe, featuring local coffee and chocolate; a Creative Lab with the latest maker technologies like 3D printing and music-making software as well as "old school" tech such as sewing machines and a turntable; a flexible Children's area; and the very popular Music and Movies collection. The second floor includes the Adult collection, study rooms for a range of group sizes, and a large, flexible multi-purpose room with tiered seating to allow for a wide variety of events. The multi-purpose room has already been very popular with the community, hosting community feedback sessions, film screenings, TEDx events, music recitals, and the highly-popular Coffee and Chocolate Society. The second floor also features a wrap-around terrace offering views of the Capitol Building to the east, Salt Lake City's picturesque skyline and landscape to the south and, to the north, views to a public plaza and open green space as part of a new mixed-use development.

The project utilizes an exterior shading device along the west-facing glass to minimize solar heat gain yet still promote a dynamic interaction with the street and passersby. Its compact footprint reduces land use and allows for a high-performance building envelope. The use of LED lights, lighting control systems, occupancy sensors, and daylight harvesting reduce the amount of electrical energy consumption while the flood of natural light creates an inviting interior environment for patrons and an efficient, balanced workplace for staff. In honor of these sustainability features, the Marmalade Branch was awarded the LEED Silver certification from the US Green Building Council (USGBC).
