And for that matter, art can change the world too.

Most of the time, a piece of art is created and it is forever emblazoned on our culture, heritage and psyche forever. It is rare when art is passionately collaborated among a group of artists and turned into something so amazing, so breathtaking you can't explain it, and then destroyed.

Such is the case of the 337 Project in downtown Salt Lake. An old building, getting ready for demolition to make way for eco-friendly condos is opened up to artists from all over the city to artistically create a place of symbolic reverence.

I went yesterday and was blown away. I've never seen anything like it.

Check the Project out if you have some time this month. The building is being torn down next month so there isn't a lot of time.

If you love art, go see it. If you don't love art, go see it anyway.

"It'll change your life I swear."

I second that. It's an almost life-changing experience.
