    Nate FrancisNate Francis is a Utah-based artist working with photography and sculpture. His work explores queer identity and growing up gay in Utah. He was raised in an LDS family of 9 children and served an LDS mission in Taiwan. His recent work focuses on the impact of growing up in the LDS church and coming out as gay in 2016. Nate will graduate from the University of Utah’s College of Fine Arts in April 2021 with a degree in Photography & Digital Imaging and a minor in Sculpture Intermedia.Alli ArochoAlli Arocho is an artist and folklorist from Borikén (Puerto Rico). Her work represents an attempt to capture and reconnect with her Puerto Rican heritage in the context of the diaspora that she embodies. Alli experiments with acrylic paints, and mask-making out of coconuts and clay. She leans into her own diasporic nostalgia and shares familiar stories that allow her to connect with other displaced borinqueñes and latinxs from all over. Most influential to her art, however, is the studying of Bomba music and dance, as well as the existence of the vejigante folkloric character, which are symbols of her culture’s 500+ years resistance to assimilate to foreign colonizing powers.TUESDAY: 1:00 pm ~ 5:00 pmWEDNESDAY" 10:00 am ~ 1:00 pmTHURSDAY: 3:00 pm ~ 7:00 pm
