  • Up Close & Far Away

    April 22, 2020 - April 1, 2021

    Life as we know it has been put on hold. Many of us feel far away from the comfort and security of our regular routines — we’re up close to a new normal. We are all united in this unexpected opportunity to examine the aspects of our lives that we are distanced from and closer to. Up Close and Far Away invites Utah K-12 students to reflect on their own experiences, activities, and commitments while looking closer at relationships, places, and things in their current spaces.  As today’s challenging circumstances shape our worldviews, we can also look forward with hope to the future. This special online exhibition consists of submitted works from K-12 students across the state and their responses to COVID-19. Participate by viewing how Utah’s youth have coped with crisis and change.
