UMOCA accepting Out Loud applications for LGBT teens

The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art is accepting applications for its annual Out Loud program — a contemporary art workshop series for youth voices in the LGBTQIA+ community.

“Through explorations in contemporary art and the creation of a museum exhibition featuring their own artwork, students build their capacity for self-expression and cultivate a sense of agency as important contributors to our society,” Elly Baldwin, UMOCA’s curator for public involvement said. “The program promotes a brave space for interactions with peers, mentors and the greater community, helping students build positive social connections and share their experiences with others.”

Students in grades 9 through 12 are encouraged to apply before Jan. 14.

The course is no charge for accepted students. Space is limited. Apply at For more information, contact Elly Baldwin at or call 801-328-4201 x124.
