Art Access, a Salt Lake City organization which aims to build an inclusive and diverse arts community in Utah through creative opportunities for people with disabilities and other marginalized communities, has announced two new staff members: Cara Jean Hall as Communications and Digital Marketing Manager and Max Barnewitz as Program Manager.
Cara Jean Hall loves art, people, has a passion for art and civic engagement, and a desire to celebrate and understand the human experience which is reflected in her personal studio work and professional work. Hall spent the first 15 years of her adult life raising four children, received her BA from the University of Houston, and now resides in Millcreek where she plans on staying for the rest of her life. Her first experience with Art Access was when they displayed her painting series Grip: Conversational Portraits on Mental Health. Since then she has participated in 300 Plates multiple times and is now thrilled to be on the team as the Communications and Digital Marketing Manager.
Max Barnewitz is passionate about art, education, and community organizing. Over the past several years, Barnewitz has applied their leadership skills to organizing local multidisciplinary arts festivals and elevating the voices of underrepresented artists in Utah. Max’s career has focused on community outreach and education, with an emphasis in social equity and environmental sustainability. Currently pursuing a graduate degree in comics, Barnewitz spends as much time as possible reading graphic novels, cooking adventurous meals with their partner, and hiking with their dog.
