the historical documentation of the Spiral
Jetty by commissioned Italian photographer Gorgoni,
beautiful art photographs by Telford, Frankoski, and
Burton, 19th century historical photographs by
Savage and others, and political campaign photographs

of interpretations in the exhibit shows the
importance and fascination of the Great Salt
Lake not only to Utahns but to the world.
