Park City Film Series to Host Women’s Panel in Conjunction with RBG Screening

The Park City Film Series will be showing RBG the weekend of June 8-10. RBG was a hit at Sundance, especially with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg attending the festival. The film is an inspiring look at her life, covering her marriage, her health, her family and, of course, her astonishing legal career. To further discuss this legacy, we're hosting a panel after Sunday's screening moderated by KPCW's Leslie Thatcher, with women who have equally incredible stories. We wanted this panel to represent different points of Justice Ginsburg's career, so we have an ACLU attorney, a law school professor, and a Utah Supreme Court Justice.

Local Artist Profile: Mick Savage Blends Art & Science

It’s been wonderful to get back to my art in a serious way.”
