Plakat by Trent Call from the Winter 2016-2017 Celebration of the Hand Exhibit


Craft Lake City invites you to submit an application to participate in the Spring 2017 Celebration of the Hand exhibit!

The goal of the Celebration of the Hand exhibit is to engage citizens and visitors by enlivening downtown Salt Lake City, creating a walkable outdoor gallery that showcases the work of local artisans, including those who participate in Craft Lake City’s annual DIY Festival.

The exhibit makes use of eight permanent plakats that are installed along the sidewalks in downtown Salt Lake City, located on the North and South sides of Broadway (300 South) between 200 West and West Temple. The eight plakats for the exhibit are adjacent to each other. Plakats are approximately 4′ x’ 9′ in size. The exhibit is open to the public 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and is free of charge. The Spring 2017 exhibit will be on display Mar–Jun 2017.

For the Spring 2017 exhibit, we invite artists to visually tell a personal story about a time when they confronted a fear and conquered it.

Craft Lake City is seeking submissions for both 2D and 3D works. Artists will be paid a $150 stipend. Materials and supplies will be provided by the artist. As part of the application process, artists are required to submit a concept sketch for approval.

For more details and to apply, go to the online application. Submissions must be received by Monday, March 6.

Feel free to contact with any questions.

This exhibit is made possible through the support of UDAM, The Center for the Living City and The Temporary Museum of Permanent Change.
