Displayed along Broadway between 200 West and 200 East in downtown Salt Lake City, Celebration of the Hand: Lya Yang is a new streetside display showcasing 14 photographs by emerging local artist Lya Yang. The large photographs depict individuals wearing fragmented mirror masks against diverse Utah landscapes. The images explore themes of place, identity and anonymity, and seek to capture the beauty found in imperfection. The photographs will be on view 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, free of charge through the end of March 2021.
Lya Yang is a visual artist born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah by immigrant parents. She received a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Utah, but has an interest in many visual mediums, including 3-dimensional materials and photography. In 2017, Yang was selected as an Artisan Scholar for the Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival Artisan Scholarship and Mentor Program.
The Celebration of the Hand exhibition series is curated and organized by Craft Lake City, with support from The Center for the Living City and The Temporary Museum of Permanent Change.
