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

Celebrating agriculture through art, Barns, Cows, Tractors, Horses, Hay, and Farmers focuses on paintings, prints, and sculpture from the collection.

A timeline of USU agricultural milestones will accompany the exhibition.

All Things Considered: USU Senior BFA Show

Arts/Entertainment

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

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.

When Women Don’t Speak: What It Takes for Women To be Heard

Panel Discussion/Presentation

The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our third Spring Women’s Leadership Forum.

Drs. Jessica Preece and Christopher Karpowitz will present their groundbreaking research that shows what it takes for a woman to truly be heard. After years spent analyzing lab and real-life settings to determine what it takes for a woman to truly be perceived as competent and influential, they discovered that for women, having a seat at the table does not mean having a voice. They will discuss their research that has found that women are systematically seen as less authoritative and that their influence is systematically lower. And when they speak up, they are interrupted and not listened to as much.

So, what can be done? This engaging presentation will provide tips and strategies that can help all women understand what it takes for women to be heard and viewed as influential. Women of all ages (and those who influence them) are welcome to listen, learn, and ask questions in the chat! Register now!

All Things Considered: USU Senior BFA Show

Arts/Entertainment

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.

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.

The World's Principled Leaders: Stephen M.R. Covey

Panel Discussion/Presentation | Focused Friday

Best-selling author Stephen M.R. Covey is one of the world’s leading authorities on trust. He asserts that it is “the most overlooked, misunderstood, underutilized asset to enable performance. Its impact, for good or bad, is dramatic and pervasive. It’s something you can’t escape.” Covey shows how trust—and the speed at which it is established with clients, employees, and all stakeholders—is the single most critical component of a successful leader and organization.

All Things Considered: USU Senior BFA Show

Arts/Entertainment

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

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.

Race and gender have long kept certain performers and composers out of traditionally white, male spaces in American classical music. The recent surge of interest by musicians, concert programmers, scholars, and writers in “lost” composers of color and women composers prompt us to recall the words of Masha Gessen: Is it a revolution, or a series of retributions? This lecture considers how exclusions in the sphere of music can be addressed by students and scholars, and concludes by reflecting upon possibilities for public-facing music scholarship and community engagement.

A Research-Based Approach for Improving Precalculus Teaching and Learning
By Dr. Marilyn Carlson
Arizona State University School of Mathematical & Statistical Sciences

Abstract: The function concept is a central idea of precalculus and beginning calculus and is used for modeling in the sciences and engineering, yet many students complete courses in precalculus and calculus with weak understandings of this concept. Students who are unable to construct meaningful function formulas to relate two varying quantities have little chance of responding to novel applied problems, or understanding key ideas of calculus such as derivative, accumulation and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. I will share data that reveals how students might construct these and other critical reasoning abilities and understandings for learning calculus. I will share the research developed Pathways Precalculus student materials and teacher resources that provide the context for this research, and are resulting in large gains in student learning of the function concept and other foundational ideas for learning calculus..

Workshop/Training | Focused Friday

Social intelligence is commonly referred to as “common sense”, “tact”, or “street smarts.” It is the capacity to understand and connect with others. Join Doug Fiefia, former USU Student Body President, MBA graduate from Rice University, and current manager at Google Customer Solutions for a discussion on why social intelligence matters in your career and how you can use it to connect with your coworkers, clients, and more.

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.

The World's Principled Leaders Series: Ward Clapham

Panel Discussion/Presentation | Focused Friday

When Ward Clapham took command of the third-largest Royal Police force in Canada, the organization ran like most bureaucracies—heavy command-and-control management and strict adherence to the status quo. But Clapham didn’t believe in staying in the box. Today he challenges the way work is traditionally done and inspires leaders to rethink the way they manage people and unleash hidden talent.

Jazz Clinic with Melissa Aldana

Arts/Entertainment

On her first jazz quartet "Visions", award-winning saxophonist Melissa Aldana connects her work to the legacy of Latina artists who have come before her, creating a pathway for her own expression. Inspired by the life and works of Frida Kahlo, Aldana creates a parallel between her experiences as a female saxophone player in a male-dominated community, and Kahlo’s experiences as a female visual artist working to assert herself in a landscape dominated by men. On her first jazz quartet recording, Aldana adds a new dimension to her sound, resulting in a transformative movement of expression and self-identity.
Aldana was born in Santiago, Chile. She began playing the saxophone when she was six, under the influence and tuition of her father Marcos Aldana, also a professional saxophonist. Aldana began with alto, influenced by artists such as Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderley, and Michael Brecker. However, upon first hearing the music of Sonny Rollins, she switched to tenor; the first tenor saxophone she used was a Selmer Mark VI that had belonged to her grandfather.
