Barns, Cows, Tractors, Horses, Hay, and Farmers

Exhibition

Farming and agriculture, the activities that feed us, are not usually the focus of landscape and outdoor paintings. However, artists constantly find bucolic, farming, and pastoral scenes an intriguing mix of nature and humanity. Celebrating agriculture through art, Barns, Cows, Tractors, Horses, Hay, and Farmers focuses on paintings, prints, and sculpture from the collection. Instead of depicting landscape devoid of human presence, these works of art reflect the imprint of humanity on the land in many different ways. A timeline of USU agricultural milestones will accompany the exhibition.

Three Depression-Era Photographers In Utah

Exhibition

Dorothea Lange (b. New Jersey, 1895 –d. San Francisco, 1965), Russell Lee (b. Ottawa, Illinois 1903–d. Austin, Texas 1986), and Arthur Rothstein (b. 1915, New York –d. 1985, New Rochelle, New York) are the three photographers who were hired by the Farm Security Administration to document rural Utah in the late 1930s. The portraits of agricultural workers and their families, and the land that they worked, provide a unique picture of Utah’s rural past. Lange, Lee, and Rothstein, all well-known photographers when they were hired for this project, took their photographs in rural towns and counties in Utah and these photographs include imagery of Box Elder and Cache Counties as well as Escalante, Santa Clara, Washington, and Widtsoe, Utah. The exhibition is comprised of 34 photographs by Lange, Lee, and Rothstein from the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art collection.

American Farmer

Exhibition

American Farmer celebrates the living spirit of our heartland through the faces and voices of the people who keep it alive. Featuring 45 color and black and white portraits in addition to interviews with farmers from across the United States, American Farmer tells the inspiring stores of the stewards of this land. When photographer Paul Mobley set out to capture the soul of our country’s farm communities, he encountered an enduring rural culture that remains rooted in the principles of tradition, family, integrity, and hard work. Crisscrossing the country from Alaska to Florida, Mobley’s photographs show the geographic and cultural diversity of the American farmer. His photographs are accompanied by anecdotes and memories of their subjects. American Farmer is a traveling exhibition organized by Exhibits USA.

Big Bands

Arts/Entertainment

The USU Jazz Ensemble, directed by Greg Wheeler, will perform four selections based on four completely different style of jazz. Bob Mintzer's rock-shuffle selection entitled "Mr. Funkâ" will open the show. Thereafter the band will lay back with a memorable Nestico/Basie based tune by Jim Martin entitled "The Count Is In." A powerful arrangement of Mambo Inn provides terrific jazz dissonance throughout this arrangement by Michael Mossman featuring many of the band members. The Jazz Ensemble will close the set with a classic from Super Mario 64 entitled "Bob-Omb Battlefield."

The USU Jazz Orchestra will close out the show with four selections of their own, including Bob Mintzer's tribute to the gateway through which so many immigrants came to America, Ellis Island. Michael Brecker's funky and soulful "Renaissance Man" follows, arranged by our very own jazz piano professor, Ryan Conger. Don Dimick's very Basie-esque "Tone Poem" will feature the trumpet stylings of Nik Clark, and to close, the entire saxophone feature steps out on the Maynard Ferguson Bebop Nouveau Band classic, "Cruisin' for a Bluesin."
