Tomorrow, the Utah Jazz and AT&T will host a public ceremony to debut a new community art project on the exterior of the Artspace Bridge Projects in downtown Salt Lake City.
The 12-by-5 foot mural is titled “All Hands In! Together We Can Make a Change.” The mural comprised of more than 200 ceramic tiles created by local residents and youth from The Road Home shelter with an assist from Jazz forward and artist Jeremy Evans.
The project highlights community building through the power of art and is part of the Jazz and AT&T’s shared commitment to youth development and community enrichment. Art Access, a local non-profit organization that offers inclusive arts programming for Utahns with disabilities and those with limited access to art, helped to facilitate the project.
Art Access also received a $10,000 donation through the Jazz and AT&T’s “Assisting the Community” program, which featured a $5 donation from AT&T for every assist made by the Utah Jazz during the 2013-14 season.
You are invited to join in this unveiling tomorrow at 11 a.m. at Artspace Bridge Projects, located at 511 West 200 South.
