Salt Lake City Public Library to Exhibit Artwork by Layne Meacham

Salt Lake City Public Library presents, Mindfulness Highway: Paintings by Layne Meacham. Opening August 13, 2022 at The Salt Lake City Public Library, Gallery at Library Square, Level 4, the exhibit features recent work by local artist Layne Meacham.
Meacham explains, “Mindfulness Highway 2022” is not a body of work as Edwin Twombly and Robert Rauschenberg suggested that “need not express anything at all, except itself”. On the contrary, Mindfulness Highway is intended to trigger the thousand experiences we have all had driving endlessly down the highways to arrive at an odd or beautiful place; however, I try to stress shape, color and most of all texture. Once we arrive at the destinations of wonder we seem to forget the highway, how it hypnotized us by staring forever at the lines on the highway as we sailed along, and all of the odds and ends we viewed on the way to the destinations, and the gas stations, quicky marts where we bought soda, coffee, chips, etc.; where we had our kids say over and over “are we there yet.” We now solely focus on the national geographic destination we were expected to go to so we could tell our friends we were there.
On another level, we never really see asphalt up close, even inches away. I find that the asphalt is very interesting and even beautiful. Here I have placed the road on a white wall in contrast to the black asphalt, which likely has never been seen in a gallery before in this fashion. Here the viewer is welcome to touch or even rub the road and the stripes. I also was thinking of Bogota, Colombia with a population of over 9,000,000 people, which I am fond of, and have visited quite frequently. Approximately 1,000,000 a day ride their bicycles every day in Bogota to their jobs or schools. You can rub the bicyclists painted on the asphalt and closely examine and contemplate the many times the long distances some cyclists travel every day in Utah.
Mindfulness Highway will be shown at The Salt Lake City Public Library, Gallery at Library Square, Level 4, 210 East 400 South, from August 14, 2022 to September 23, 2022. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, August 13, 2022 from 4pm-5:30pm.
The Salt Lake City Public Library is open Mon–Thu 10am–8pm, Fri–Sat 10am–6pm and Sun 11am–5pm. For more information on viewing the exhibition, please call 801-524-8200 or go to https://events.slcpl.org/artexhibits.

CAN YOU DIG THIS?

Friday, June 17 @ 8:00 PM
In Person @ Liberty Park

When one thinks of South Los Angeles, what comes to mind is gangs, drugs, liquor stores, abandoned buildings and vacant lots. The last thing that you would expect to find is a beautiful garden sprouting up through the concrete, coloring the urban landscape. As part of an urban gardening movement taking root in South LA, people are planting to transform their neighborhoods and are changing their own lives in the process. Calling for people to put down their guns and pick up their shovels, these “gangster gardeners” are creating an oasis in the middle of one of the most notoriously dangerous places in America.

TROUBLEMAKERS: THE STORY OF LAND ART

Friday, June 24 @ 8:00 PM
In Person @ Liberty Park

Troublemakers unearths the history of land art in the tumultuous late 1960s and early 1970s. The film features a cadre of renegade New York artists that sought to transcend the limitations of painting and sculpture by producing earthworks on a monumental scale in the desolate desert spaces of the American southwest. Today these works remain impressive not only for the sheer audacity of their makers but also for their out-sized ambitions to break free from traditional norms. As the film makes clear, in making works that can never be possessed as an object in a gallery, these troublemakers stand in marked contrast to the hyper-speculative contemporary art world of today.

SUMMER OF SOUL (… OR WHEN THE REVOLUTION COULD NOT BE TELEVISED)
Friday, July 29 @ 8:00 PM
In Person | Liberty Park

A documentary about the legendary 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival which celebrated African-American music and culture and promoted Black pride and unity. In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson presents a powerful and transporting documentary—part music film, part historical record created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. Filmed over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, the footage was largely forgotten–until now. Summer of Soul shines a light on the importance of history to our spiritual well-being and stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present.

In a frenzied few weeks, Brody and his young wife are mobbed by the public, scrutinized by the media, and overwhelmed by the crush of personal letters responding to his extraordinary offer. Fifty years later, it’s the discovery of twelve large boxes of unopened letters in an LA storage unit that inspires Dear Mr. Brody. Neither Michael Brody Jr.’s story, nor the thousands of stories in the letters have ever been told — until now.
