After several years as director of education and engagement at the Utah Museum of Fine Art, artist Jorge Rojas took the leap earlier this year to full-time artist. Ever since, he says, opportunities have been coming his way. From his Corn Mandala: Flower of Life on exhibit at UMOCA through the end of the month, to his recently announced artist-in-residency at the Kimball Arts Center

  • In conjunction with Artist-in-Residence Jorge Rojas’ community art project Gente de Maiz / People of Corn, the Kimball Art Center has partnered with Artes de México en Utah, Utah Humanities, and Park City Library to present We Are People of Corn / Somos Gente de Maiz, a series of interactive classes, talks, readings, art making and meal sharing. The series will take place in August and September and invites the community to explore the meaning and cultural importance of corn to indigenous peoples of the Americas.
