Arts practitioners and community leaders will discuss how arts-based practices provide healing opportunities. Participants will create their own art in response to topics explored during the panel.

Arts practitioners, art therapists, and community leaders will discuss how arts-based practices can provide healing opportunities for individuals and communities. This panel will present the therapeutic value of the arts in three parts: art in response to global crises, art therapy in clinical practice, and community-centered art as therapy experience.

Participants will learn about the power of therapeutic art-making on an individual and global scale, create their own art in response to topics explored during the panel, and leave with an understanding of the intrinsic therapeutic value of art creation.

Panel will include:

  • Vickie E. Morgan, ATR, CMHC, Art Therapist, University Neuropsychiatric Institute,
    and Adjunct Professor, Salt Lake Community College, Utah Art Therapy Association President, Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Brandy Farmer, President/CEO of Centro Civico Mexicano, BOD/Vice Chair of Comunidades Unidas, Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Jave Gakumei Yoshimoto, MFA, MAAT, Visual Artist, Assistant Professor of Art, University of Nebraska at Omaha

About the library

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed through 2020 for repairs and renovations.

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The structure embraces a public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium.

A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
