BROKE is an art exhibition that features original works from four artists in the Artist Working Group Program at Art Access: Anne Vinsel, Fiona Summers, Kristen Vardanega, and Sylvia O'Hara. The artists worked from April to September to create individual works, across various mediums, that explored the connection between disability and socioeconomic class status (SES). Topics such as: How do social ideas about "worth" show up in how disabled people work, live, and play? How does socioeconomic status affect the day-to-day experiences of people with disabilities? What is necessary to create a world where social and economic agency and safety are an everyday part of disabled experience? Their works will be showcased at Art Access from October 6th through November 2nd.
You may visit the gallery Tuesday-Thursday from 9am to 2pm. The event is free to the public. There will also be a free opening reception on October 6th from 6pm-8pm at Art Access. For more information about the event, the artists and their works, please visit www.artaccessutah.org

Say She She, the soulful female-led trio, stand rock solid on discodelic duty with their boundary breaking sophomore album Silver. “Tell them what you want - the time will soon be gone...” Like the lyrics from their latest single C’est si Bon (it's so good!) that features on the album, the honeyed harmonising trio - consisting of the three strong voices of Piya Malik (El Michels Aair staple feature, and former backing singer for Chicano Batman), Sabrina Mileo Cunningham and Nya Gazelle Brown who front the band - stay true to their word. These women have something to say and they are not afraid to play with the medium. Leaning into their “boundary busting discodelic soul” (The Guardian), their flawless harmonies twist and writhe, capturing listeners hearts with buttery vocals, fat funky basslines, catchy hooks and up-tempo grooves. Silver oozes with quirk and the album is an adventure through 16 songs - a double sided LP that opens with an incantation and ends with the title track that will lull you into a dreamscape with a locked groove of silver noise. The needle drops on the powerful opening track “Reeling.” Released in January, it immediately made #1 in KCRW’s Top 10 charts. The track was playlisted at BBC’s 6 Music and the 45 (w/ “Don’t You Dare Stop”) charted in the UK. Opening with the fiery incantation to “Kick the door down, smash the ceiling, leave ‘em reeling!” the song sets the mood for a musical journey imbued with political grit, along with “Echo in The Chamber,” a song addressing gun control. It includes the tongue-in-cheek wit of “Entry Level,” which satirizes the condescending underestimation of a boss.
