APR 13 | 2 - 4 PM Join University of Utah students as they create a fun Family Art Saturday project based off of our Main Gallery exhibition, Shady Acres. Shady Acres is about the reality of Suburbs and how artists interpret their experience growing up in a “out of city life.” How can we look at our world differently through everyday objects? Come and find out!

Participants are responsible for their bar tab at the end of the night. 21+ event
