10:00 am - 5:00 pm    LUX: Light and Space Art from the Museum's Collection

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

This exhibit includes 17 paintings, photographs, and sculptures from the museum's collection exploring how artists have used light as a medium or subject matter. Several large pieces focus on artists who are considered to be the leaders of the light and space art movement of the 1970s. The artists in this exhibit bring up philosophical issues about how the brain perceives the world, and these artworks expand the ideas of what materials are actually considered to be art. Seven new pieces are included in this exhibit which have never been on display in the museum before. At the same time, this work creates enchanting experiences of color, shadow, and shape that are sure to entertain all ages. The exhibit also includes one of the most significant artworks in the museum's collection: a Plexiglas disc installation by Robert Irwin.

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

Northern Utah-based photographer Chris Dunker presents 21 selections of his work in the exhibit, "Industrial Ethos." These loaned photographs address the culture of industry and how industry appears over time. Dunker's fascination with urban decay provides a dystopian look at the modern, optimistic attitude of industry and manufacturing that has marked the progress and historical significance of northern Utah. Also included in the exhibit are antique books and photographs from Dunker's personal collection that document some of the earliest industrial breakthroughs such as steam turbines and generators. Certain industries, local to Cache Valley and the northern Utah region, are featured in the exhibit, including ICON Health and Fitness, Thermo Fisher, Nucor Steel, and Sirtec Plastics.

11:30 am - 12:30 pm    More Than A Labor of Love: Organizing Home Care - Eileen Boris, UC-Santa Barbara

Student Activities / USU Student Association (USUSA)

This talk looks at feminist understandings of care and work by looking at paid household workers, both housekeepers and those who tend elderly and disabled people as home aides. It argues that "hostile worlds" analysis, that care can't be done for money and still be care, is one factor that feeds into the low wages of those who earn their living through these labors of love. But the question remains, can that which is devalued be revalued by regarding care, already commodified or bought and sold, as employment or work? Who has the privilege to make that claim? In today's movement of domestic workers, led by immigrant women of color, we see an alternative discourse, "leading with love," that offers a social justice framework for caring labor.
