12:00 am - 12:00 am    Book Drive

Fundraiser / Other

The Physical Education club will be collecting book until Oct. 5. All books will be donated for the Apache Indians on the White River Indian Reservation in Arizona. All books will be indexed to create a library for the youth on the reservation. There is not a current library on the reservation and many youth do not have books to read. We would appreciate books appropriate for children ages 9-16. Please bring all books to the HPER department main office. In addition to the book drive, organizers are also collecting t-shirts (size large or bigger), hats and gloves. Those items can be dropped off at the HPER main office as well.

10:00 am - 5:00 pm    Landscape and Lace: Cache Valley

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

By Megan Mitchell. Fences, doors and windows indicate an intersection between inside and outside, public and private. These porous boundaries provide enclosure while also allowing access to an outside world. I am drawn to these divisions in space both as aesthetic and metaphorical objects. They are the point of departure for an exploration of the intersection between real and imagined worlds. 'Landscape and Lace: Cache Valley' juxtaposes the structural framework of a fence with a landscape inspired by Cache Valley. My intention is to provide a sense of both containment and spaciousness. The piece also contains a decorative element which is derived from a sample of lace. I use this pattern to further the dialog between inner and outer spaces.

10:00 am - 5:00 pm    Good Neighbors

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

Good Neighbors by Todd Hayes features a seven-foot-tall wooden fence enclosing a seven-by-twelve foot plot. After a futile search for a gate, viewers peer through the small slit openings & spy a small porcelain house standing in a yard comprised of salt. The house is a mid-century ranch style house, exactly the kind that sprang up in suburban developments around the country after World War II. Though good fences may make good neighbors—as the saying goes—this fence completely cuts off any relationship to the outside world.
