(KSL News) A downtown Salt Lake building has turned its 25,000 square feet of space into an art canvas.

Artists have spent the past three months covering the walls, floors, ceilings and any other inch of the building at 337 South 400 East with art. It's called the 337 Project, involving 150 artists ages 10 to 78.

Anyone can look at the masterpiece free of charge through this weekend and the artists weren't paid to participate. So what's the catch? The building will be demolished this summer because of foundation problems. The owners decided to offer up the space as it sat empty waiting to be knocked down.
