Bridge Over Barriers, Salt Lake City, Utah (2005 – 2012)
In January of 2005 NeighborWorks of Salt Lake invited Lily Yeh to lead community members to create one of the largest public art projects in the state of Utah.
Under Lily Yeh’s direction, several prominent Utah artists were trained to take her methods and engage the community at large to create a comprehensive and aesthetically pleasing design that reflected the lives and cultures of these neighborhoods.
The Bridge Over Barriers project consists of sixteen mosaic tile covered pillars and more than 22,000 square feet of stained concrete murals on the I-15 overpass at 300 North.
NeighborWorks Salt Lake marked the completion of the mural on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and community celebration.
