Jazz Mentors Foundation Salt Lake City, Utah based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2023 to encourage junior high, high school and university student musicians to study and play jazz. And to encourage awareness and appreciation for jazz in our community. Jazz music, while being the foundation of most modern music and one of the great American art forms, is in decline. It currently represents less than 1% of streaming music volume in the U.S.. We believe that by exposing students to excellent jazz musicians and concerts, we can revitalize this incredibly important and fun art form in Utah. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our generous sponsors for their support in making this event possible Chair Sponsors: The Tippins Family Bandleader Chair Feldman’s Deli Vocal Chair The Tiffany and Jared Quilter Rhythm Guitar Chair The Jack and JoAnn Turner Drum Chair The Roy Donk Trumpet 1 Chair The Scott Hansen Trumpet 2 Chair In Honor of Marvin D.

Book Release Party & Comic Jam with author/artist Angie Sandberg

The Printed Garden is proud to collaborate with local author/artist Angla Sandberg on our very first Comic Jam! If you haven't attended a comic jam before, you're in for a treat. A comic jam is a spontaneous creative event at which a number of people collaborate on the creation (any combination of writing, drawing, inking, and/or coloring) of a comic book, working one after the other. In the jam, the first participant will draw either the first page or the first panel, and pass the page along to the second, who will produce the second page or panel, handing it along, in turn, to the third, who will pass it to the fourth, etc. until a number of completed pages are finished or the story has been brought to its conclusion. Participants can choose to take part in the writing process, draw, ink, color, or contribute however they feel they are best able to in order to bring the comic to life! Frequently, there simply is no script at all, and the panels are improvised as the creative process steams forward. Each participant will create his or her panel or panels based entirely on the preceding panels and story created up to that point. This Comic Jam will be facilitated by author/artist Angela Sanberg, who will also be apprearing to celebrate the release of her first Dash & Shanks mystery! Angie will talk about her own creative processes, the creation of the Dash & Shanks characters, and offer creative advice to aspiring cartoonists and zine creators. This event is free and open to the public, and will begin at 7:00 p.m. A good time is sure to be had by all!
