The Urban Arts Gallery presents PROTECT / DISARM, an exhibit of local artwork examining the environmental and humanitarian crises of modern society.

“To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts—such is the duty of the artist.” -Schumann

Salt Lake City, Friday, August 17th: Throughout August, Urban Arts Gallery will split its space in half to present two distinct yet complementary exhibits, each aimed at addressing problems of social inequality, injustice, and ignorance. Guest curated by Adelaide Ryder, “Protect” is a small group show of local artists who are passionate about discussing and exploring social issues. “Disarm” by Konstructivist is a collection of radical, relevant artwork designed to invoke conversation and progress towards solving the environmental and humanitarian crises facing modern society.

The show will hang from July 31st to September 2nd, with a gallery stroll reception on August 17th from 6-9 pm. Admission is free and open to the public.
