Mitsu Salmon, artist-in-residence at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. In her exhibition, Somatic Tracing, on view at UMOCA, Salmo combines paintings and performances that draw from two movements that emerged in Japan after WWII: Gutai, a group of artists associated with action painting, and Butoh, a form of contemporary dance. The project explores the largely hidden history of Asian labor in the United States, in particular the work done on the transcontinental railroad.

A #RoundtableTuesday panel discussion about cannabis against the backdrop of Utah Cann, City Weekly's third annual Cannabis Business Conference and Expo, May 13-14 at the Utah State Fair Park. Panelists included:

  • City Weekly Publisher Pete Saltas. The alt-weekly is putting on the conference and advocating for the industry much like it did restaurants and bars over the years given the peculiar Utah laws governing otherwise legal adult pursuits.

  • Alyssa Smailes, executive director of the Utah Cannabis Association, which describes itself as "the voice of the cannabis industry in the Beehive State."

  • J.D. Lauritzen, head of legal, compliance & government affairs at WholesomeCo, a complete, plant-to-patient medical cannabis company based in West Bountiful, Utah

  • Cole Fullmer,  publisher of Salt Baked City, Utah's first cannabis news and wellness magazine
