Viridian Center

World Class Venue

in West Jordan

The Library’s Viridian Event Center located inside the Salt Lake County Library is one of the most underrated venues in Utah. When someone new comes to a show at the Library’s Viridian Event Center they often tell us “We had no idea a concert hall this beautiful was in West Jordan. This is something you would expect in New York City!”

Best Spot for Music in Salt Lake County

“Viridian is the color between green and cyan on the color wheel and comes from the Latin viridis, meaning ‘green’. We often associate green with a verdant garden, and cyan (blue) with the sky. Most simply, these two elements are the design informants of this library/event center. The building poses a long transparent face along the edge of the city’s park, allowing library and event patrons to feel connected to the most significant green space of the community. Connections to the sky occur via three ‘light boxes’ – basically, incisions through the center of the building, from roof to ground level, that reflect and bounce sunlight to internal spaces. “
