Decisions Downstream

Exhibition

All of us—people, fish, and many other creatures—depend on the water in Utah’s rivers. The choices we make about how to develop water resources have big impacts on river habitats. In Decisions Downstream, watershed scientist Dr. Sarah Null teams up with artists Carsten Meier and Chris Peterson to explore new ways of seeing river habitats. Come immerse yourself in beautiful large-scale images created from layers of scientific data, original paintings that capture the transcendent experience of encountering wild fish, and projections onto 3D maps that tell stories of our past water development choices and those we face in the future. Then discover how new water management models can help us preserve river habitats and supply water for people. Critical water decisions are being made in Utah. Decisions Downstream highlights the water development tools, tradeoffs, and alternatives that can guide our choices.

Coping with Loss During COVID-19

Workshop/Training

Over the last year, most of us have accumulated multiple losses as a result of the global pandemic. Though loss weighs heavy on our hearts, these experiences are often the catalyst for reconstructing purpose and meaning about our lives. Additionally, collective experiences of grief and loss are unique opportunities for us to co-create meaning together.

In this webinar, we will learn how to support one another as we encounter the collective losses and the personal losses that each of us have endured over the last year. Attendees will be given a chance to explore how these losses have changed their view of self, relationships, and their purpose. Then, we will use this meaning to identify positive coping mechanisms to use as we turn to face the unknown in 2021.

The Geometry and Physics of Hitchin Systems

Conference/Seminar

Steven Rayan Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Saskatchewan
Director, Centre for Quantum Topology and Its Applications

Abstract: The moduli space of stable Higgs bundles on a Riemann surface, known as the Hitchin system, arises as a space of gauge-equivalent, dimensionally-reduced solutions to the self-dual Yang-Mills equations. This moduli space turns out to be a completely integrable Hamiltonian system; a noncompact Calabi-Yau manifold; and the natural setting for a mirror symmetry that is intertwined with Langlands duality. In this talk, I will introduce the Hitchin system from multiple points of view and sketch the interesting algebraic and geometric features that have been discovered over the past 30 years. I will conclude by speculating on connections between Higgs bundles and condensed-matter physics.

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.

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.

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.

Women, Surrealism, and Abstraction

Exhibition

During the 20th century, art made by women was often overlooked or dismissed by museums, collectors, and art historians. Featuring work by 46 artists, "Women, Surrealism, and Abstraction" attempts to present a more holistic and complex view of art history—one that highlights artwork by women pushing beyond societal expectations and creative limitations through Surrealism and abstraction. Also featured alongside the art are 16 poems written by women in the Cache Valley literary community.

Stay in Your Own (Musical) Backyard: Segregation, Discrimination, and the Cost of “Keeping it Barbershop.”

Arts/Entertainment

Speaker: Clifton Boyd, Yale University Description: In tandem with their desire to preserve the barbershop style, the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) has historically discriminated against those deemed to be outside of this musical tradition, particularly women and people of color. In order to combat this history, the BHS recently launched a new strategic vision, “Everyone in Harmony.” Yet the question remains: how is the changing social culture of the BHS reflected in the musical aesthetics of the barbershop style? In this talk, I examine how music theory has historically been instrumentalized within the BHS to influence and affirm the Society’s discriminatory sociopolitical values.
