Artist Ruby Chacón’s portraits ‘Honoring My Community: A Collection from 2005-2016’ will be on display from 4/3/2017 to 6/4/2017.
Ms. Chacón was raised in Utah, and graduated from the University of Utah College of Fine Arts.As a Utah native, she looked for her own history as a Utah Chicana in images in the Utah history books and the overall Utah narrative, but never saw it. It wasn’t until she graduated from college that she began to discover her own history, as a “Utahna.”
Ms. Chacón will share her story of an artist at two upcoming events in early June: a Women in Leadership event and artist lecture and after-hours art reception. Check back soon for dates and times.
