A Call to Place: the first five years of the Frontier Fellowship is a publication created in tandem with the exhibition of the same name at the Rio Gallery in downtown Salt Lake City, March 18 – May 13, 2016. A Call to Place features 50 visiting artists and collaboratives who have each spent up to a month in residence generating place-based work in Green River, alongside the community. Curated by Maria Sykes, Bryan Brooks, and Corbin LaMont; design by Corbin LaMont; featuring essays by Nicole Lavelle, Miles Mattison, Cyrus Smith, and Charlotte XC Sullivan.

Interstate Works by Sarah Baugh & Nicole Lavelle: Completed in 2015 and 2016, this series of gestures, inquiries, and small projects looks at Green River through the interstate. This document is a catalog of works that build upon and follow their collaborative Green River work from 2011–2014, notably community publications The Green River Newspaper (2012) and The Green River Magazine (2013).

Rural And Proud Bags: Our most popular item, these bags are printed in-house and were designed by Frontier Fellow Nicole Lavelle. We’ve sold hundreds of these; won’t you join the rural revolution?


Stay at the Frontier House: We recently completed our first Frontier House, a prototype for affordable housing in the high desert of Utah, and you can stay in it. The house will be furnished with a kitchen and free wifi. You will be able to join the Epicenter staff in dinner, sunset viewing, and beach days! Since this house will also be used to house volunteers, there will be some blackout dates. Once you donate, we’ll work with you to get you the date that works best for everyone.

Tees and tanks: Now you can proudly let the world know what you love most about Green River by wearing these fabulous T-shirts featuring the best of the desert. Sunset Club, Swasey’s Beach, or Black Pyramid. All shirts are screen-printed by hand in our workshop in Green River on 100% cotton Bella & Canvas shirts. Designed by Geoffrey Holstad, 2015 Frontier Fellow. Quantities are limited and colors may vary, but we’ll do our best to give you the design of your choosing.

A Green River Flag: Through an extensive community-engagement process, Frontier Fellow Ashley Ross and AmeriCorps VISTA Jarod Hamm designed a community flag for Green River. Buy one and fly it high even (especially?!) if you’re not in Green River.

Frontiersmen subscription: Can’t decide on what you want, but want to donate over $250? Become a Frontiersman! Frontiersmen receive physical mailings every other month. Mailings may include apparel, chapbooks, zines, newspapers, film prints, Green River delicacies, music CDs, or DVDs!
