The Gateway was filled with color for the 11th annual Utah Foster Care Chalk Art Festival, as 125 artists created works of art on the outdoor mall's streets, on June 14–15. The goal of the festival was to educate the public about Utah Foster Care's work and to persuade people to become foster parents or donate. Branching off the organization's ad campaign featuring real foster families, parents who could talk about their foster care experience were on hand to answer questions.
