Matchbox Art: Public Workshop led by Céline Downen @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
May 10 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Matchbox Art: Public Workshop led by Céline Downen @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

What can you do with a 1 1/4” X 2” canvas?

Since its introduction at the 1855 Paris Expo, the matchbox has found its own little place in design history. From Sweden to India, matchbox design has ranged from minimalist to ornate. In this workshop, we will find inspiration from Mexican matchbox art to artist books, and explore what kind of tiny masterpieces we can create with UMOCA’s first Educator-In-Residence, Céline Downen. This workshop is free and all materials will be provided. RSVP is preferred, so please contact Elly Baldwin by email at elly.baldwin@utahmoca.org or by phone at 801-328-4201×124.

Join us for the opening of five new exhibitions on May 19 from 7 to 9 p.m.!


STREET GALLERY: Michael Ryan Handley | Sublimation
Equal parts alchemy, science experiment, and process-based art making, Sublimation explores the generative power of moisture and the lack thereof in areas experiencing prolonged drought as evidenced by the color and feel of the soil and vegetation in those locations.

CODEC GALLERY: Willow Skye-Biggs | Tastes Like Mandy
Tastes Like Mandy is a visceral experience that combines queer cues with assembled audio recordings that simulate the abstract sounds of entering into or exiting from an organism, human or otherwise.

A-I-R SPACE: Kelly O’Neill | rend/er
Kelly O’Neill’s rend/er presents 3D prints and CG photographic scenes constructed from photo documentation collected on the site of Nancy Holt’s seminal 1976 work titled “Sun Tunnels,” and presses the audience to contemplate their digital experience and the models on which our contemporary understanding of space teeter.

PROJECTS GALLERY: SIDESHOW: 2017 Gala Art Auction
Each year, UMOCA is overwhelmed by the generosity of the art community. As a part of our annual gala, the Museum’s largest fundraiser of the year,local, national, and international artists donate their precious time and talents in the form of incredible art to the Gala Art Auction.

ED. SPACE: Céline Downen | Beehive Works 
Downen and her University of Utah students brought the workshop “Beehive Works” to the Glendale Library and facilitated four weeks of art workshops geared towards all ages. Downen brings to UMOCA the end result: a collaboration of colors, patterns, thoughts, and conversations where participants made not only the objects you’ll see in the exhibit but also new human connections.
