Art, Activism, and the Environment: A benefit for HEAL Utah at Gallery MAR, featuring distinguished guest Chip Ward

Chip Ward is the author of Canaries on the Rim: Living Downwind in the West, which was selected as Park City’s 2009 summer read.

As a writer, political activist, and one of the original founders of HEAL Utah, Chip will discuss what “living downwind” in the desert really means and why he got involved in the movement to re-engage people in the decisions affecting their health and environment.

You will also have the opportunity to learn about HEAL’s current efforts to transform Utah’s energy policy and protect our state from nuclear and toxic waste, as well as to view the contemporary art at Gallery MAR.

Space is limited, so if you have not done so already, PLEASE RSVP at

Refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres will be served. Donations to support HEAL Utah’s work will be accepted although there is no expectation or obligation to give.
