Art Night for Ukraine @ Impact the HUB (Downtown Salt Lake City, UT)
Oct 24 all-day
Art Night for Ukraine  @ Impact the HUB (Downtown Salt Lake City, UT) | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

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.

The 25th Annual Navajo Rug Show and Sale @ Snow Park Lodge
Nov 7 – Nov 9 all-day
The 25th Annual Navajo Rug Show and Sale @ Snow Park Lodge | Park City | Utah | United States

The Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program is proud to sponsor the 25th anniversary of our Annual Rug Show and Sale, November 7th – 9th at Deer Valley’s Snow Park Lodge in Park City, Utah. This year the theme is HONORING OUR WEAVERS.

The Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program is a non-profit humanitarian organization that provides 525 traditional Navajo Elders with food, basic medicines, firewood, and other necessities throughout the year. Including family members, we serve over 3000 people on the reservation.

The Rug Show allows 30 weavers and their families to come to Park City to share their culture with visitors and to sell their rugs and jewelry. They return home with all the proceeds from their sales.

The Rug Show is a unique opportunity for visitors to see hundreds of rugs and perhaps take one home. This year our weavers were invited to create special rugs in which they feature themselves in a self-portrait weaving at their loom. These rugs will be available at a special silent auction.

Thank you for helping us inform the public about this special event that makes such a difference in the lives of the visitors, the volunteers, and especially the Navajo Elders.
