Arts & Entertainment / Merrill-Cazier Library

In commemoration of Utah State University’s 130-year anniversary and the Year of the Arts, the Merrill-Cazier Library presents an exhibit celebrating USU’s Built Environment. The exhibition tells the story of USU’s development – from the first master plan in 1912, through both world wars, the Great Depression, and beyond. Additionally, Built Environment highlights student and community efforts to shape the campus. Drawing on documents in the library’s Special Collections and Archives, student intern Cody Patton prepared the narrative for the exhibit under the direction of University Archivist, Robert Parson.

9:00 am - 6:00 pm    Work in Progress Mural Project at Utah State University

Exhibition / Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

The Work in Progress is a collage-style mural that is a stunning visualization of the impact of women on our society. It is a community project and the brainchild of Jann Haworth. To date, over 120 Utah men and women have created stencil portraits of more than 150 women who are catalysts for change in the arts, sciences and social evolution. Their portraits were then made into a collage by artist Liberty Blake. The mural is over 40 feet long and growing. A reproduction of the mural will be on view in the lower level of USU’s Merrill-Cazier Library January 16 – March 29, 2018. Some 30 USU faculty and students will contribute to this mural as they propose names of women from their fields for inclusion in new segments of the mural. This project is being organized for USU by the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art in partnership with Merrill-Cazier Library on this Year of the Arts initiative.
