On view from July through September 2022, Celebration of the Hand: Save Our Great Salt Lake highlights work by 14 Utah-based visual artists while raising awareness about local ecological issues surrounding our city’s namesake. Each Great Salt Lake inspired art piece is printed and installed in large 4’ x 8’ streetside frames in the downtown Salt Lake City area, giving passersby the opportunity to engage with the artwork while learning about environmental stewardship. This exhibition features a range of impactful large-format visual art depicting a variety of native species of birds, brine shrimp, bison, vegetation, & more whose existence is threatened by the degradation of the Great Salt Lake. In spotlighting a range of different Utah artists for this exhibition, the scope of this project includes work by local illustrators, photographers, animation artists, & multimedia artists. Displayed in 14 frames along Broadway (300 S) between 200 W and 200 E, Celebration of the Hand: Save Our Great Salt Lake features local artwork that encourages viewers to learn about the rapidly drying lakebed & engage with ideas that matter.
