Mitchell Barton is an artist working in Salt Lake City, UT, USA.

Recent(ish) projects include:

  • “Razorbacks” — an exhibition at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art.

He also runs a little gallery space in his basement furnace room called Washer / Dryer Projects that is hardly ever open to the public but always open on the internet.

Apart from making art, he makes custom websites for people at Cold Rice LLC.

His work has been shown online and in real life at Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Arcade on Stadium, Tropical Contemporary, UMOCA, CUAC, Der Grief, A New Nothing, Self Publish Be Happy, The Daily Lazy, In The In-Between, and others.
