Start 2020 with bigger dreams!

Salt Lake City’s Immersive Art Experience

Ticketed experience – Come in costume for $5 off admission.

Now a permanent attraction, Dreamscapes was born at ILLUMINATE in 2018 as an experiment in immersive art and collaboration of 100 local artists and builders. During the festival, more than 8000 guests toured the space. The enthusiastic response to the debut encouraged our team at the Utah Arts Alliance and our hosts at the Gateway to take this project to the next level. We are now open four days a week, year round, at the Gateway. Dreamscapes continues to evolve, inspire and highlight the creative culture in Utah.

Please note, winter hours are in effect.

The art elves need time to make more cool stuff for your enjoyment.
