Festivals 18th Annual Llama Fest In their native Peru, Chile, and Bolivia, llamas carry heavy loads over terrain that is impassable to motorized vehicles. They are the trucks of the Andes. In America, life is much easier—they have become

popular for carrying camping gear on weekend hikes and daytrips. Many have found a niche as sheep guards on the open range. Others, like an RV purchased with good intentions but somehow never used, spend their lives simply munching grass and looking good for passers by. The Llama Fest was

originally conceived as an opportunity to highlight llamas and their owners in the most public way possible: in the overall cultural context of food, music, spinning and weaving demonstrations, music, dance, and competitions between the llamas and their handlers. See website for full schedule.

Kids From Hogwarts to Goosebumps: Speculative Fiction for Kids Does the idea of a magic wandwaving, starship-flying vampire

Legal “urban art” brings color, curiosity, and originality to a cityscape. We see advertisments in every direction; giant arrows on the road, street signage, do’s and don’ts, traffic lights. Every so often there is an original piece of art on an otherwise empty wall. Usually the artist worked without being paid, just for the opportunity of making a moment, a surprise, a gift to an overlooked site. This workshop at The Leo offers an opportunity for teens (grades 10-12) to work with two artists who have contributed to the urban art scene in Salt Lake City: Benjamin Wiemeyer and Jann Haworth. Students will visit nearby examples of Urban Art and learn the same graffiti techniques used by Jann, Benjamin, and other artists. Urban Art Summer Teen Workshop, July 16-20, 1-4p. The Leonardo, 209 E 500 S. $165/student, $135 Leo members. JCASSIDY@THELEONARDO.ORG, 801-531-9800x131.
