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

Laura Besterfeldt: Neck Laced Nutrients

Through Dec. 24 @ Tin Angel Cafe


Food is one of those artistic themes, like sex and death, that engages us on some elemental level. With Neck Laced Nutrients, Laura Besterfeldt reprises the same culinary themes from her show at the Tin Angel Café a year ago with artist/comedian Brooke Connelly. We are used to sterling silver as a utensil, not as the “food” itself, so these 45 new pieces can create a perceptual disjunction in miniature. The works might be laced with all kinds of other minerals, but you won’t want to eat them, eye candy though they might be.

The Tin Angel is the perfect place to view Besterfeldt’s work—if the pieces whet your appetite, you can actually grab a bite from the cafe’s eclectic, inventive menu. You might not be able to get your daily requirement of vitamins and nutrients from these adornments, but they’ll leave your imagination satisfied.

Laura Besterfeldt: Neck Laced Nutrients @ Tin Angel Café, 365 W. 400 South, 801-328-4155, through Dec. 24.
