What is Home? - An Exhibition

Ongoing through Thursday, August 11, 2016

And when do houses become them? Is it how long we’ve lived there? The kinds of memories we’ve made there? Is it the people that live there?

Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity partners with families to build homes that they can afford. Just like the process of building a Habitat home, the “What is Home” exhibit is an example of what happens when people come together to create something on behalf of others.
