For Freedoms: Fifty States Exhibit

Arts/Entertainment

Since 2016, For Freedoms has produced exhibitions, town hall meetings, billboards and public art to spur greater participation in civic life.

This year, we launch The 50 State Initiative, a new phase of programming from September through December 2018 during the lead-up to the midterm elections. Building off of the existing artistic infrastructure in the United States, For Freedoms has developed a network of artists and institutional partners who will produce nationwide public art installations, exhibitions and local community dialogues in order to inject nuanced, artistic thinking into public discourse. Centered around the vital work of artists, we hope that these exhibitions and related projects will model how arts institutions can become civic forums for action and discussion of values, place, and patriotism.

Schooled in War: The Great War and the transformation of Utah Agricultural College

Panel Discussion/Presentation

In connection with the University's series of events commemorating the Armistice Day Centenary, this presentation to the Utah Division of State History will look back at how the "war to end all wars" impacted Utah through the lens of the UAC and Cache Valley. While enlistment frenzies drained the campus of men and left female students preparing to form a "Legion of Death" in case of German invasion, civilians on the home front dealt with anti-German sentiment, an influx of outsiders training at the newly-expanded college, and the devastation of the influenza epidemic.
