Out Loud: Ostracized & Masked Exhibition Schedule

UMOCA | MAY 24 – JUL 6

What does it mean to be ostracized,excluded, marginalized?
What does it mean to be masked, cover, or otherwise hide oneself?

This exhibition, organized as part of the Out Loud program, which offers support and a community to LGBT+ Youth, explores identity , mostly through portraiture or through visual interrogations of oppressive systems.

LGBT+ youth often find themselves as *other*, and this mark of difference, assigned by the larger society, can cause distortions of self and fogged realities, leading many to either mask themselves or to be excluded.

Through the process of art making, Ostracized & Masked, seeks to open a space for dialogue, and, as a collective group, to speak, to be seen, and to unmask.

The work will also be exhibited at the following places:
Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center | JUL 12 – 15
Sugar Space Arts Warehouse | JUL 28 – AUG 11
Mestizo Coffee House | AUG 13 – 31

Kintsugi: Japanese method of repairing broken pottery

Participants will learn the history of Kintsugi, the ancient Japanese method of repairing broken pottery with gold. This method celebrates the imperfections and breaks in an object, rather than trying to hide or cover it up. Participants are encouraged to bring their own broken ceramic bowls/pieces or pieces they can break in class. We will provide bowls for those who need them and all other supplies.

FAMILY ART SATURDAY: ABSTRACT-CICLES @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art

Abstract art uses shape, color, and texture to stir our emotions and jumble our thoughts, similar to how we feel in the thickness of a hot summer day. What better way to cool off and have fun than by making art that looks like a Popsicle?
