The LIA students did such fine work on their drawings, that they were invited to participate in a show at Poor Yorick studios! Twice a year this artist space opens its’ doors and invites the public inside to see what they’ve been making.
Megan Hallet and Sarah Kappos were on site taking photographs and asking people to make claims about something important to them. OurSLC: Claim It! is asking people to think: What is really important to me? Many folks were surprised at how difficult of a question this actually is. They also felt hesitant to write something in bold letters and be photographed holding up their claim.
