Wasatch Charter School is displaying an art exhibit at the Main Library from June 1 to August 20 with pieces inspired by the Great Salt Lake.
Topics range from photography, over landscape-model knitting, Aztec mythology, Goshutes history, geology of the Great Salt Lake, weather and water cycle, to salt art. Through this exhibit, the artists hope to reflect the value of our famous Utah landmark and ecosystem and therefore also promote the protection of the Great Salt Lake.
This summer, you can come see this exhibit on Level 2 of the Main Library (210 E 400 S) in the teen area.
The City Library offers free gallery spaces to teen artists, with the Main Library’s teen exhibit being just one of many library locations where you can share your art with our community.
Interested teens can apply for an exhibit at the library at: slcpl.org/teen-art-exhibits
Or you can ask at any City Library for a paper application.
The Main Library has frames to lend you for your gallery and the teen librarian, Becca, can walk you through the process of putting together an exhibit of your own work.
