Latinos in Action students Help Envision Future Public Art at the 9-Line Pump Track
Students from the Latinos in Action program at Glendale Middle School bicycled to the 9-Line Pump Track (900 South and 700 West) to offer their ideas for a future public art installation at the site on Thursday, April 7. The art installation consisted of painting murals and bicycle frames. Students also had the chance to ride the pump track and enjoy Belgian waffles from Waffle Love food truck. They also had the opportunity for Salt Lake Tribune to capture their involvement.
The event is a part of “OurSLC: Claim it!”, a city-managed, community-driven art project funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The project will result in public art installations in three locations on Salt Lake City’s west side: 9-Line Pump Track, Fred and Ila Rose Fife Wetland Preserve, and Sorenson Unity Center. The installations are expected to be complete by the end of the year.
