PEAU is the Tongan word for ‘wave’ and also an acronym for ‘Pasifika Enriching Arts of Utah’. This exhibit highlights just some of the treasures made by PEAU artists and families inspired by their time at a weekly open art studio session at Art Access studio at Art Space. Pasifika Enriching Arts of Utah (PEAU) is a Pacific Island community based group of artists, creators, and patrons of the arts bridging across all art communities to empower, support, and promote artists and creators of Pacific Island descent and of ethnic and underserved communities, and to increase income into households through the arts.

This project acts both to facilitate art making and social action. This dual function is explained and inspired by the artists Joseph Bueys and Rick Lowe as ”social sculpture”. The art becomes the bridge for interaction at the cultural borders that exist in our locality.

This is an exhibit of social action-based photography, culminating in a collaborative installation by participants of the South Franklin Community Center in Provo. It is curated by Kindia du Plessis and Julian Harper.
