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

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.

The exhibition includes work from members of the Seattle Camera Club, FSA (Farm Security Administration), f/64 (a group of 20th-century photographers known for precise exposures and depiction of natural forms) and contemporary photography portfolios such as American Roads (printed in 1981), The Museum Project (printed in 2015), and DEMARCATION (printed in 2018).

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.

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

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.

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.
