LOGAN — Jump the Moon art studio had to move in February after falling behind on a lease.

The charity, which helps people with disabilities express themselves through art couldn’t help as many people in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I tried to stay real positive, optimistic that something good would work out,” Michael Bingham, owner said.

Now, something positive is coming out of the closure.

Bingham said Utah State University’s Institute for Disability Research, Policy & Practice has offered his nonprofit a space in its building.

“It is a huge relief to see that we have a spot, and we have somebody who wants us to be a part of what they’re doing,” Bingham said.

It will take a couple of weeks for “Jump the Moon” to move into the new space, but Bingham said he’s grateful to be helping people again.

“They still need to express themselves, and so that’s why we’re so excited to get started again, and we want to make that happen,” Bingham said.
