One of the first episodes of The Beehiv featured the community developers at the Granary District and the high hopes they had to revive their cute, industrial corner of the city. Who would have imagined that less than a year later, they would be the hosts of Salt Lake’s hippest weekend block party – Granary Row. Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night until October – a section of 7th south comes to life with food, music, and microshops housed in the 20 ft. shipping containers that decorate the street.
Living Traditions Festival celebrates the arts and traditions of the many ethnic communities throughout the valley. This episode of The Beehive focuses on the creative works of a young Native American potter, taking after her parents, and a 93 year old master of Japanese calligraphy.
The Living Traditions Festival is May 17-19
Every Spring, the Living Traditions Festival celebrates the folk and ethnic artistic traditions that flourish in our community. This episode of The Beehive features two of this year’s featured artists. Jachelle Yazzie is a first time participant in the event; as a young Navajo potter, she is finding her own place in her cultural tradition. Masami Hayashi has been displaying his work as a master of Japanese calligraphy for decades.
