Craft Lake City Announces the Spring 2017
Celebration of the Hand Exhibit

Salt Lake City, March 29  Craft Lake City, The Center for the Living City, and The Temporary Museum of Permanent Change announce the Spring 2017 Celebration of the Hand Exhibit.

For the Spring 2017 exhibit, the artists use their plakats to tell a story about a time when they confronted a fear and conquered it. The exhibit is a collection of seven two-dimensional works and two three-dimensional works by local artists:

The artists use their own personal narratives to tell universally appealing stories about the power to overcome fear. From conquering natural obstacles to breaking perceived barriers, these stories remind us that we have the capacity to transform our circumstances by taking action.

The plakats are installed adjacent to the sidewalks in downtown Salt Lake City, and are located on the North and South sides of Broadway (300 South) between 200 West and West Temple. The exhibit will remain on display through the spring and summer, and is open to the public 24 hours a day 7 days a week, free of charge.

For more information about the exhibit, including artist bios and images, visit the Craft Lake City website.

Applications for the next exhibit will open in late summer. To be notified about the call for submissions, sign up for our newsletter or send an email to

The Celebration of the Hand exhibit is made possible through the support of UDAM, the NEA, The Center for the Living City and The Temporary Museum of Permanent Change.
