Saturday, August 10 | 12–10 pm | Craft Lake City DIY Festival @ Utah State Fair Park | ACME Session is FREE | DIY Festival Admission required

Transform your trash into a public art piece with the Utah Museum of Fine Arts and local artist Emily Quinn Loughlin at this year’s Craft Lake City ACME Session. Festival goers are encouraged to bring their clean trash and recyclables, drop in to the ACME session to participate in the creation of a community art project, and watch it grow throughout the day. ACME stands for art, community, museum, and education and is a UMFA community partnership and engagement program dedicated to rethinking the public role of museums. This ACME session seeks to increase our awareness of abundance by revealing sustainable ways to be creative with no cost barrier.

 Tickets for the DIY Festival are available here:
