WEST VALLEY CITY -- In West Valley City Tuesday, a crowd honored a celebrated Utahn and gifted American artist.

They celebrated the opening of an exhibit at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center on 1355 W. 3100 South in West Valley that is comprised of artwork from famed artist Arnold Friberg.

The exhibit includes a piece started by Friberg in 1940 but finished just days ago; it's titled "Sighting the Valley."

Gov. Gary Herbert declared Nov. 10 as Arnold Friberg Day in Utah for his inspiring generations of artists.

Friberg, who is now 95, was not able to attend Tuesday night's event.

The exhibit runs through Saturday, Nov. 14 and is free to the public. It is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
