Families; It’s All Relative. A photographic documentary exhibit

Join Art Access for an opening gala, on Jan. 17, 6-9 p.m., of a photographic portrait project 12 years in the making. The exhibit is created by Marva Match, Dan Fandrich and Lynda Lee, and documents life transitions of families who identify with, or are supportive of, the LGBTQ+ communities in Utah. Each set of portraits represents a family originally photographed in 2007 and again in 2019.

Seeking to connect the personal with the political and give voice to diverse family groups, the project began with a group of 25 families who were photographed and interviewed about their lives. Some of the families were contacted in 2019 and re-photographed and interviewed again about their life transitions which are both unique and shared.

This is a unique experience, so go view the exhibit, enjoy light snacks, take home a tiny portrait of your own family and engage in lively conversation. The exhibit continues through Feb. 13, 2020 at Art Access Gallery, 230 S. 500 West.
