ARTIST STATEMENT: Although some people experience the world differently than others due to differences in abilities, experiences, and opportunities, they still have a need and desire to reflect their experiences through any means available to them. In this case, art. As you view this work, entitled “Impressions, Expressions, and Interests,” we hope that you may see or feel similarities that echo themes and experiences from your own lives. We may find that sometimes, we are not so different after all. Sometimes we express through art how we see the world, or how the world could be seen; with swirling color, dynamic lines, and unorthodox shape. Sometimes our interests help give us focus. Focus on a favorite animal, perhaps, that can help give us purpose in our leisure as we render these magnificent animals in every way we think about them and imagine them. Sometimes, the act of creation itself, as we express through design and color, can calm a troubled mind and excited state of being. Sometimes our inner turmoil and unpredictable emotions can't be put into words, because there are no words, so we express in whatever way we can- through art. Art gives a voice to these indescribable impressions, attractions, feelings, and coping mechanisms, and through this, we can be understood and seen.

ARTIST BIO: TURN City Center for the Arts was the first arts-based day program for adults with disabilities in Utah when it opened in 2012 as a day program within TURN Community Services. TURN is an organization dedicated to choice, quality, and respect for people with disabilities and those who support them. TURN City Center for the Arts is contracted with DSPD, and works with individuals with developmental disabilities and a wide variety of physical needs. Due to the limited physical, behavioral, and cognitive capabilities of many of our artists, we use a variety of adaptive techniques to create art, and are always finding ways to take a different approach to enable our artists to create. Our goal is to help adults with disabilities to enrich their lives through the arts, as we strive to be a place of creative growth and support for our participants. Through providing opportunities to show their work to the public, we hope to provide a continued understanding of this population and the similarities that extend far beyond ability. This exhibit showcases the work of four of our artists.

About the branch

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed through 2022 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.
