Local Artist Speaker Series


SLC Arts presents a new speaker series on the third Tuesday of each month. The purpose of this series is:

  • To raise awareness of the importance of the arts to our local communities.
  • To inspire confidence in starting on an artistic journey.
  • To provide a forum for artists or those interested in the arts to connect.

Speakers will give a presentation on their artistic process and journey, and then there will be time for questions and networking, and a reception with light refreshments.
