UCUR Art Exhibit Submissions

Date/Deadline | Year of the Woman

Utah’s history, even before statehood, is a story worth viewing from the perspective of gender. What do indigenous traditions and archeological evidence tell us about the women of the region before colonization? What do pioneer records and diaries reveal about the experience of gender in Utah’s territorial and early statehood period? How have Utah’s “firsts” such as being the first state to enact woman suffrage, and the first to send a woman to the US Senate shaped the state’s identity? What role do women of every sort play in Utah’s present economy, religious environment, politics, and culture, and where will women lead us in the future?

This exhibition, part of the Utah Conference on Undergraduate Research 2020 invites the submission of works of visual art in two or three dimensions that touch on the theme of Utah Women: Past, Present, and Future. The works will be installed by the artists and exhibited for one day (February 7, 2020) in the Taggart Student Center at Utah State University. The juror will select the prize-winning works, and there will also be an audience-choice award.

David Maisel: Proving Ground

Exhibition

In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground. Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm – in Maisel’s words, a “hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society.”

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.

Mary Claire Becker & Amanda Lee Exhibition

Arts/Entertainment

Marie Claire Becker’s research explores the fetishization of landscape as “other” in industrialized cultures, particularly in the United States, through artworks that rearrange and re-contextualize human-made depictions of Nature. In her work, botanical designs rooted in the domestic are exaggerated to the point of parody verging on oversaturated kitsch. By highlighting visions of Nature that are embedded in American culture, she aims to emphasize their artificiality. Her work investigates and responds to man-made nature as a way to further understand her ecological identity and her responsibility as a post-digital human.

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.

David Maisel: Proving Ground

Exhibition

In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground. Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm – in Maisel’s words, a “hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society.”

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.

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.

Friends of the Library Lecture with Rod Decker

Conference/Seminar

For 40 years, Utah politics have pitted the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints republicans against “non-Mormon” democrats – and the republicans have won. Utah is among the most republican states in the United States, but it wasn’t always so. From statehood to the mid-1970s, Utah followed the political mainstream, voting with American majorities and enjoying strong, two-party competition.

Retired journalist and published author Rod Decker will speak about the evolution of Utah politics regarding religion, sex and family on November 7th at 7 p.m. in room 101. This event is free and open to the public.

Guest Artist Recital: Stanford Olsen and Dallas Heaton

Arts/Entertainment

In this recital featuring seldom heard works for voice by three of the 20 century’s most influential British composers, USU Faculty Collaborative Pianist Dallas K Heaton and guest artist, tenor Stanford Olsen of the University of Michigan explore the debt each of these innovators owes the traditions of British song. Britten’s “Canticle III: Still Falls the Rain” is a powerful composition subtitled “The Raids, 1940: Night and Dawn”, and will also feature horn player Lauren Hunt. Vaughan Williams’ “On Wenlock Edge” couples the timeless melodic elegance of British folk song with equally timeless poetry from Thomas Hardy’s “A Shropshire Lad”. And Tippet’s rarely programmed “Boyhood’s End” (written for Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears) sets a moving reminiscence by author and naturalist W.H. Hudson in an idiosyncratic and virtuosic riff on traditional cantata form.

Applied Mathematics Seminar: Fast Semi-Implicit Lagrangian Particle Tracking of Polydisperse Particles

Conference/Seminar

Speaker Info:
Som Dutta, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Utah State University

Abstract: Lagrangian particle tracking, and the related point-particle models are an efficient and effective way to track coherent structures in a flow, and model transport of particulate matter. Applications of point-particle models range from sediment transport in rivers, to atomization of fuel in an internal combustion engine.

We propose a fast semi-implicit time stepping scheme for integrating the equations used for Lagrangian tracking of particles with inertia.

In the second part of the presentation, we talk about a novel scheme to accomplish the most expensive part for any Lagrangian particle tracking calculation, the interpolation step, where the velocity field (and others fields) from the Eulerian grid is interpolated to the location of the particle.

I will close the presentation with a brief overview of different types of fluid dynamics the phenomena I am working on, and are interested to explore in the future.

David Maisel: Proving Ground

Exhibition

In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground. Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm – in Maisel’s words, a “hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society.”

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.

However because of suicide contagion, many school systems banned students from discussing the series. One school did a 13 reasons why not project, in which 13 students expressed their own struggle and how they overcame those struggles. Dr. Meg Lachmar (HDFS faculty member) will present the findings from conducting five focus groups at the school.

David Maisel: Proving Ground

Exhibition

In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground. Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm – in Maisel’s words, a “hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society.”

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.

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.

Uncovering Diversity Issues in STEM through Hidden Curriculum - Idalis Villanueva

Conference/Seminar

What is the hidden curriculum? We understand that “the hidden curriculum consists of the ‘norms, values, and expectations’ that govern interactions among students, faculty, staff and administrators,” and the hidden curriculum poses particular challenges for low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students (Insider Higher Ed, 2014) especially in STEM fields. Join this discussion considering how we can identify diversity issues by acknowledging hidden curriculum and address inclusiveness in the classroom.


Dr. Idalis Villanueva, PhD

Dr. Idalis Villanueva is an Assistant Professor in Engineering Education at USU, and is an award winning faculty researcher who was recently recognized with the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers.

David Maisel: Proving Ground

Exhibition

In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground. Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm – in Maisel’s words, a “hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society.”

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.

Mondays: closed
Tuesdays: 10am-5pm
Wednesdays: 10am-5pm

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.

Museum and Music Series

Arts/Entertainment

“Proving Grounds:
Landscapes of the American West”
Sunday, November 17 | 4 – 5:30 PM | Free and open to all

Featuring compositions by Terry Riley, Toru Takamitsu, and pieces from 13th century Paris

The American West is synonymous with landscape, from the seminal 19th century paintings of Thomas Moran to the stirring 20th century photos of Ansel Adams. In the exhibition Proving Ground, David Maisel evokes the same sense of the sublime found in these artists with perhaps a more sinister topic: aerial photographs of the restricted government instillations and facilities which mark the west desert of Utah.

The Tribeca Ensemble, NEHMA’s ensemble-in-residence, will present a concert of varying musical landscapes from ancient to modern. This will be bookended by compositions from California minimalist Terry Riley, and provide the perfect counterpoint to Maisel’s majestic, yet disturbing, images.

Museum + Music is curated by USU Musicology Associate Professor Christopher Scheer

David Maisel: Proving Ground

Exhibition

In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground. Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm – in Maisel’s words, a “hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society.”

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.

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.

Heart Beats

Upcoming Exhibition
November 21, 2019 – February 1, 2020
Opening reception: November 21 | 6:30 – 9:00 PM | Free and open to all
Live jazz, poetry readings and refreshments served
Heart Beats is curated by the USU English 4310 Beat Course taught by Professor Paul Crumbley.
The Beat artists represented in this exhibition embody unique expressions of the artistic rebellion that rocked American culture during the 1950s and can be considered individual beats within the pulsating “Beat heart.” Poet Allen Ginsberg’s first public reading of his poem “Howl,” at the Six Gallery in San Francisco on October 7, 1955, triggered an unanticipated explosion of emotional energies unleashed by his denouncement of spiritual emptiness and blind conformity to a growing capitalist, materialist society.
This exhibition combines Beat writers with little magazines and the artwork of the period sourced from NEHMA's collection and the Merrill-Cazier Library to communicate the interconnectedness of the entire Beat artistic scene.

Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. These young spellers are facing real-life adult pressures, experiences, and tribulations, and as such, some material may not be suitable for young audiences. The content is comparable to that of a PG-13 movie.

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.

USU Opera Theatre Presents: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Arts/Entertainment

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. These young spellers are facing real-life adult pressures, experiences, and tribulations, and as such, some material may not be suitable for young audiences. The content is comparable to that of a PG-13 movie.

David Maisel: Proving Ground

Exhibition

In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground. Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm – in Maisel’s words, a “hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society.”

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.

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.

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.

David Maisel: Proving Ground

Exhibition

In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground. Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm – in Maisel’s words, a “hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society.”

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.

MUSEUM HOURS:
Mondays: closed
Tuesdays: 10am-5pm
Wednesdays: 10am-5pm
Thursdays: 10am-7pm
