All Things Considered: USU Senior BFA Show


Twenty Senior Bachelor of Fine Arts students have been hard at work preparing for their undergraduate capstone show. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, students have been preparing artworks to share. In response to the trials and tribulations they, and all of us, have faced during the last year the show has been aptly named: All Things Considered. For this show, nearly two-dozen students from various artistic disciplines are combining their efforts and talents for a single exhibit. This show will showcase the skills and concepts the graduating B.F.A. students have been developing during their time as undergraduate students. Art and Design students begin their journeys with their foundations classes where they attempt to master the basics of two- and three-dimensional art. During that same time, students are preparing to enter their desired emphasis. Once they have been selected for these competitive programs, students have two years to explore and develop skills in their chosen disciplines. All Things Considered will highlight the respective creative-research and development of the graduating Art and Design seniors.

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


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


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


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.
