Work in Progress Mural Project at Utah State University

Exhibition

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 beautiful 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 Utah State University’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 who is partnering with Merrill-Cazier Library on this Year of the Arts initiative.

Emmy Lingscheit & Guen Montgomery Printmaking Exhibit

Arts/Entertainment

Through her work, Emmy Lingscheit investigates the interdependencies and exchanges between the biological and the man-made, revealing a postnatural world in which the line between synthetic and organic beings, systems, and materials is increasingly blurry. Guen Montgomery is an artist and performer whose work investigates identity through studies of gender, regional narrative and family mythology.

Facticity Panel: Truth and Truthiness

Panel Discussion/Presentation

This panel of USU faculty members will discuss the tension, if not outright conflict, between truth and truthiness in the media and in popular opinion. How do we distinguish between these concepts? Can we as a society find a consistent means of arriving at a baseline of accepted, evidence-based knowledge, from which good-faith discussions can proceed? Is it possible (as Aristotle might have put it) to ascend from the world of mere opinion to knowledge about social, political, economic, and scientific facts or truth? If so, how do we do so? How do we encourage critical thinking, not only in the media, but in public life and in education?
