The Ruby Chacón Social Justice Arts Award is given annually to individuals who are advancing justice and equity in our communities through the arts. Our 2020 award goes to the SLC Mural Makers, the anonymous artist collective whose portraits of individuals killed by police can be found on the corner of 800 S and 300 W in Salt Lake City. They, in turn, used the prize money to support the work of local mother and organizer Rae Duckworth, surviving family member of one of those honored in the murals.
