The Eccles Art Center announces the second annual celebration of pride during Pride Month. This competition was open to all artists who presently reside in the state of Utah. Original works in any medium including paintings, prints, monoprints, drawings, graphics, pottery, sculptures, and textiles were eligible.
The Eccles Art Center is proud to celebrate Pride Month. We support the coming together of artists and art appreciation, through the offering of this competition of shared creative expression. When the world is disheartening, a show of support and acceptance is all that someone needs to feel understood. We asked artists to create using the colors of the updated Pride flag.
