As the current events in Ukraine are widely televised, many wonder where the sudden turmoil in this country began. “Art Night for Ukraine” provides a unique opportunity for the public to better understand the current situation in Ukraine and learn about how the conflict came to be through the stories of a Ukrainian artist Marina Lukach and her work. “I was there and saw with my own eyes young, brave people ready to put their lives on the line to make Ukraine a better country,” said Lukach. “This is something that impacts your life and your view of the world.”
Join us at an art exhibit where Lucach will tell her story of Maydan and its influence on her artwork. At the end of the event, everybody will get a chance to purchase a piece of art.
All profits from this art sale will be sent to Ukraine through “Courage to Hope,” a California-based non-profit organization. “There are a lot of people in Ukrainian hospitals that need medicine, basic hygiene products and clothes,” said Bret Martineau, Courage to Hope CEO.

Comunidades Unidas/Communities United invites you to our annual signature event, The Pink Dress Fashion Show. The theme of this year’s event is “Celebrating our Past, Building our Future” as 2014 marks the 15th anniversary of Comunidades Unidas. The goal of the fashion show is both to raise awareness about breast cancer in the Latina community in an innovative, fun and culturally applicable way, and to raise funds for our Women’s Health initiatives.
This one-of-a-kind event:
• Helps to draw importance to the fight against breast cancer in the Latina community and provides an opportunity for members of both the Hispanic and non-Hispanic communities to unite in the fight against breast cancer.
• Provides a creative outlet for the community and showcases Latino artists and businesses by inviting local tailors and aspiring designers to create and submit their own designs.
• Raises essential funds for our Women’s Health Initiative that are used to provide mammograms, support services, and case management to hundreds of Latina women each year.

Join Shoshone Bead Worker Rios Pacheco and make a traditional beaded riding whip, known as a quirt. A traditional quirt consists of a short, stout stock and braided leather handle. The old style horse quirt is still carried by some today. Participants will learn about the significance of the design of the quirt and how they were used in the past.
Rios Pacheco learned the intricate art of beading from watching his mother, grandmother, and aunts as they did beadwork and tanned hides. Pacheco attended the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico in Native Studies and Native Culture and Arts. He is an instructor at the American West Heritage Center in Wellsville, Utah.

Fall is a great time to clean up our gardens, and get everything put to bed for the winter. It is also a great time to start composting. We have endless supplies of leaves, garden plants that we have pulled, vegetables that didn’t quite ripen, and all sorts of great materials to build the perfect compost pile.
You can also start your own leaf mold piles, sheet mulch your beds, start a lasagna garden, add high nitrogen amendments like manure to your compost piles or beds, add mulch to your existing garden and much, much more. Come to the Grateful Tomato Garden and learn what you can do now, to be a step ahead of the game next spring. Registration Required.

Explore the Enduring Bond between Humans and Horses:
The Natural History Museum of Utah is excited to host The Horse.
Over time, humans have preyed upon horses, domesticated them, bred them for work and play, and forged deep emotional and spiritual connections with them. Come discover the fascinating story of how humans have shaped the horse, and how the horse, in turn has shaped us.
This special exhibition includes cultural objects from around the world, a hand-painted diorama depicting the evolution of the horse, and interactives that invite you to test your strength in horsepower, identify different breeds, and peek inside a life-size, moving horse.
Explore one of Utah’s most important horse stories – the connection of the Ute people to horses. The Ute were among the first North American tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish in the 1600s. Discover how horses transformed Ute life in ways that continue to reverberate today.
The Horse opens July 19 to members and July 21 to all guests.
Horses are integral to our history and touch us as individuals. Celebrate our bond with these magnificent creatures!
