The History of the Sandy Arts Guild

The Sandy City Arts Council was formed in 1985 in order to sponsor, organize, and promote the arts for Sandy City residents.  Since then, the name of the organization has changed to the Sandy Arts Guild. And thanks to Sandy's large population, there is a plethora of talent to choose from!

In our early years, summer shows were performed on a temporary wooden stage behind the old Sandy City Hall. Seating was set up on the lawn and mobile bleachers were placed at the back. Seating capacity was usually around 500 and shows only ran 3-4 nights. Due to Sandy City's size, these early shows were always packed. Now, with the Sandy Amphitheater and Theater at Mount Jordan, the Sandy Arts Guild has two large venues enabling year-round programming in the city.

The Sandy Arts Guild has funded many arts organizations and events through the years, including Mountain West Ballet, Sandy Dance Alliance, American West Symphony and Chorus, Sandy Talent Night, Interfaith Music Festival, Sandy Holiday Sing-along, Sandy City Dinner Theaters, and The Children's Art Show.
