We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Josh Scheuerman


As an artist, I have tried various avenues to keep creating and building a work environment that inspires me and I have worked in a diversity of work settings that I love. Being a graphic designer, I have the opportunity to create new print media promotions and advertisements. In addition to design work, I also spend my nights and weekends working on acrylic, chalk art, and mixed media paintings. As a community activist I’ve learned if you are not willing to speak up for what you believe, your beliefs will always fall on deaf ears. I understand it’s difficult to make a living as an artist and by hosting a semi-annual event, Art Adoption in Salt Lake, I hope to give artists a little extra push to help them pursue their own carriers. Being an artist, I believe it’s vital to surround yourself with other artists, to share ideas and keep building on what others have already accomplished. I also believe City Weekly to be an avenue to independent media that I can rely on to communicate truthfully the issues in our city and surrounding state. I’m happy to contribute to the medium of written word with an original, and hopefully inspiring, piece of public art.
