From one the Founders of Misplaced Showcase and SLCC Graphic Design alumni, Lucas Ackley:
“A small group of Salt Lake City creatives formed Misplaced Showcase and held the first event in October 2018. We created this event to build our local art community, connecting creators from a variety of disciplines, all in the name of doing good and raising money for a cause we believe in.
We invited a curated group of 20 or so artists, including comic book artists, graphic designers, indie arcade programmers, prop builders, and toy makers. They each had a table to sell and feature their art.
It was also an opportunity for aspiring artists and enthusiasts to meet and hang out with these artists. Students brought their work for portfolio reviews and several artists taught small workshops, covering things from the comic book industry to judging scale from movie screenshots to make the most accurate Proton Pack.
One of the main goals for Misplaced Showcase is to raise money for the Children’s Justice Center. They help children escaping abusive situations by giving them all the tools they need, both legal and psychological. We set a goal to raise $1,000 to donate to this charity, and we are proud to say we hit that goal.
In life there is one eternal truth. Underneath all the anger, sadness, and fear is a need to feel we belong somewhere. Everyone wants a place to belong.
Artists express themselves through their creativity. I want to give their art a place to belong. Aspiring artists want to be able to connect with those that inspire them to create.These children we are helping are seeking a safe emotional space to belong.
We want to help build that place.”
Please help support Misplaced Showcase, The Children’s Justice Center, the local art scene, and SLCC VAD alumni!
