Re-Discovering Signs

4th, 5th & 6th-grade students at M. Lynn Bennion and Newman Elementary in Salt Lake City, Utah are preparing to celebrate the opening of their art exhibit exploring the history of neon signs.

Students have studied the commercial purpose of signs, how they are made and how they add to the character of our cities and towns. Students have approached their art with the essential question: "What signs are important to you as you travel around?"'

The exhibit will be open January 17 - February 14 at the Downtown Artist Collective, 100 South 258 East, Salt Lake City.

The DAC's mission is to create a community where artists can reflect collaborate and share in a cooperative environment. Larry Cohen, YESCO Salt Lake Design Director, is a member of the co-op.
