Join us for a night of art and dialogue, as college and high-school age youth from the "justice-memory-activism" program unveil their original public mural.

Join us for a night of art and dialogue, as youth from the justice-memory-activism program unveil their original public mural. For six weeks, youth from Salt Lake City’s west side have been exploring the multi-layered connections between art, history, identity, community, and activism. They studied with two accomplished local artists: Lily Havey, whose work explores the experiences of her Japanese-American family’s WWII incarceration in an American Concentration Camp, and Ruby Chacon, celebrated Chicana muralist and activist. On July 29, the youth will share what they have learned and created through the program. They will lead a dialogue about the community issues they have identified, and the role of art, history, identity, and culture in sparking change. This community-based residency has been a partnership between the Center for Documentary Expression and Arts, Mestizo Institute for Culture and Arts, Mestizo Arts and Activism, Sugar Space Arts Warehouse, and University Neighborhood Partners. It is supported by funding from Utah Humanities, Zoo Arts & Parks, the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, XMISSION, and Center for Documentary Expression and Art. The event is free—the public and children are welcome. Food will be available for sale.
