Mestizo Exhibit Explores Mormon Gender Identity

Mestizo Institute of Culture and Arts is exhibiting I AM I, a group show of portraits by female artists who are or were formerly Mormons, exploring the question: “How is your female gender identity defined?”

The artists grew up with traditional teachings of gender roles—tied to motherhood, modesty, sexuality and spirtuality, but their gender identities became their own, supported by what they were taught or redefined by their changes in belief.

The exhibit runs May 14 to July 7, with a reception on Friday during Gallery Stroll beginning at 6 p.m.

Mestizo Gallery, 631 W. North Temple, SLC.

The late, great Glen Warchol passed away in 2018. His last billet was on the editorial staff here at Salt Lake magazine but his storied career included stops at The Salt Lake Tribune, The Desert News, The New Times and others. His stories haunt this website like ghosts in a machine and we're always happy to see them. RIP Papa Warchol.
