CEDAR CITY — In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment to the United States Constitution and the 150th anniversary of Utah women’s right to vote, the Southern Utah Museum of Art at Southern Utah University hosts the Celebrating Women event series. This series features events partnered with Red Acre Farm and Bristlecone Company.

On Oct. 22 at the Sam and Diane Stewart Family Foundation Plaza at the Southern Utah Museum of Art, Red Acre Farm will provide the Cedar City community with a pop-up lunch. Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Enjoy delicious items such as sandwiches on homemade sourdough, scones, pies, tarts and more, all starting at just $5. Community members are invited to eat, drink and support this women-led business.

Art + Wellness: A Meditation Session with Bristlecone Company happens Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. at the Southern Utah Museum of Art. In conjunction with the museum’s current exhibition, entitled Right Here Right Now, participants can choose to focus on the anniversary of women’s suffrage in alignment with Election Day, their heritage and the stories of women that came before them, what it means to be a woman to them and many other topics inspired by the women-created exhibition.

Freshly brewed tea will be served after the meditation session at the Sam and Diane Stewart Family Foundation Plaza courtesy of Bristlecone Company. Space is limited to 20 participants age 18 or older and registration is required with a $5 fee. Spaces can be reserved here.
