Miss Utahby Keith P. Rein
ABOUT THE ART
Get off your ass and visit Utah! Represented by Erica K., in a vintage Utah Jazz ringer tee. The train and railroad hints at the world's first transcontinental railroad at Promontory where the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads met. The capital of Utah was formerly known as Great Salt Lake City, the Great was dropped in 1868. Behind this Babe you can see this tribute atop of the Rainbow Bridge, nature's abstract sculpture made of solid sandstone (which happens to be the world's largest natural rock span). Resting atop the text is the Mormon angel statue, Moroni, which adorns every Mormon temple. The temple in Salt Lake took 40 years to build! One of my favorite details of this piece is the bottled beer, Baba Black Lager brewed by Utah's own - Uinta, which is delicious and happens to be Miss Utah's favorite beer.
