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

McGarren Flack: The Lineup

Through May 9 @ Art Access Gallery



When you see someone staring back at the camera, busted and looking like a real piece of work, you rarely think of it as a work of art. McGarren Flack’s exhibit The Lineup features individual portraits (the artist himself is pictured, right) painted just that way: criminals, holding a sign in their hands, who know they have to pay for their crimes. Complete with a booking sheet full of half-true criminal information accompanying each piece, and each one hung at the subject’s actual height, this collection mimics the real deal.

This show features raw material and raw talent at their finest, and viewers may have to do a double-take to see that these pieces are painted and not actual photos. Flack’s work is well worth seeing and sure to be remembered.

McGarren Flack: The Lineup @ Art Access Gallery, 230 S. 500 West, 801-328-0703, through May 9, free.,
