The Pilar Pobil Legacy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established to secure the legacy of artist Pilar Pobil. We are committed to preserving her Salt Lake City home and continuing her contributions to the arts through educational programs and exhibitions for the community.
Filled with Pilar's work and her eclectic style of furnishings, the home is not only one of the most original in the state of utah, but in the entire country. The spectacular gardens are a social center in the warmer months, while the house and studio are open throughout the year with visitors coming from around the world.
In addition to the annual 3-day event, "Art in Pilar's Garden", which features both local and international artists and has become a mainstay of the Utah art scene, there are year-round educational, literary, musical and visual-art happenings.
The specific purpose for the foundation is to raise money to purchase Pilar's home and assure that it is preserved in perpetuity as a center for exhibits, retreats, educational programs and workshops.
In 2017 Pilar Pobil was honored by the King of Spain for her unique and notable contribution to the arts.
