2020 Utah High School Clean Air Poster Contest

Arts/Entertainment

The Utah High School Clean Air Poster Contest was created in 2015 by USU professors Roslynn Brain McCann of USU Extension Sustainability and Edwin Stafford of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business. Posters designed by teens combine art, science, and savvy marketing to encourage Utahns to help keep the air healthy by carpooling, using alternative transportation, limited idling, and trip-chaining (completing multiple errands at a time to limit unnecessary driving). Posters are often provocative, funny, edgy, and tied to teen pop culture. Winning posters are then displayed for education outreach across the state. Winning posters will be announced at 10:30 a.m.

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright

Exhibition

Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential poets.
The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding haiku.
The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20th century modernist movement Synchromism, cofounded in 1913 by MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell. The movement sought to arrange color in the same way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.
