Craft Lake City has joined forces with The Temporary Museum of Permanent Change to bring the work of Craft Lake City artisans to the streets in the form of a walk-able outdoor gallery exhibit titled, “Celebration of the Hand.” Twelve Craft Lake City participants will create outdoor works of art utilizing permanent steel frames (known as plakats) installed adjacent to the sidewalks in downtown Salt Lake City on the North and South sides of Broadway (300 South) between 200 West and 200 East. Artisans will install their works of art from July 13 to 15, with the show opening on July 20, in conjunction with the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll.
Artisans include Annika Dimeo, Michelle Christenesen, Nic Annette Miller, Keith McKeown, Issac Hastings, Rachelle Smith, Angela Flicker, Laura Frisk, Carrie Wakefield, Jorge Arellano, Eleanor Scholz and Candace Jean Anderson.
In an effort to reimburse artisans for the cost of their supplies and to promote “Celebration of the Hand,” Craft Lake City is launching a Kickstarter campaign on Mon. June 18. Craft Lake City has a goal to raise 4,000 dollars through the crowd-funding site, the majority of which will go directly to artisans to reimburse them for supplies. Individuals who pledge will be eligible to receive a number of different thank you gifts from participating artisans, such as handmade bags, prints or a 2013 calendar featuring all 12 of the plakats.
