Hop in our very own time machine back to the days when everything was black-and-white! During Week 5 of the Family Arts Festival, your family can explore the Utah of a bygone era through iconic black-and-white photos in the Fields of Labor and Recovery exhibition. What did this place look like during the Great Depression? How did children dress during this time? And how can we know for sure? See, hear, and even TASTE the past in this delightful trip back in time that will entertain and inspire your children (and make them grateful for the conveniences they have now)! Once you’re done, if you’re among the first 175 people registered, each child in your group will get free materials to create their own book of personal stories and memories.
