The second Dark Storefronts installation, The View From My Door, asked Summit County community members to share their creative spirit by submitting a photograph that represented the world as seen from a place they call home. This exhibit celebrates our sense of place, our definition of home, and our connection to our community.
The exhibit was curated by Amy MacDonald and Nancy Stoaks.
Nancy Stoaks is the Exhibitions Director at the Kimball Art Center in Park City and was formerly the Associate Director of CUAC. Stoaks has an M.A. in Art History from the University of Washington, where she studied twentieth-century European and American art. She has worked as the gallery director of James Harris Gallery and Howard House Contemporary Art in Seattle and served as the director and curator of the Swedish Medical Center art collection.
Amy MacDonald is the founder of Brolly Arts, a non profit organization in Salt Lake City designed to create meaningful art and vibrant communities through artistic and civic collaboration and experimentation. Since 1995, Brolly Arts has supported over 600 talented independent artists working in a variety of mediums.
The art board received over 120 images from the public. These were designed into large format posters that will be hung in 13 commercial buildings across the County from 5/19-7/21.
