USU Offers 19th Century Portrait-Taking, Utah Pioneer Women Exhibit
Herald Journal Tuesday, Nov. 07, 2017
Getting your portrait taken using 19th century photographic techniques or seeing a new student-led exhibit about the significance of the state’s women pioneers are just a few of the things Cache Valley residents can do this week. It’s all thanks to events organized by Utah State University with support from the Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum in Logan. “Digital knowledge is wonderful but we are losing the heritage of knowing how to solve problems with yesterday’s technology, which is still of importance,” wrote Sharon Johnson, director of the museum, in an email to The Herald Journal. ... USU also opened an exhibit on campus called “Echoes: Reflecting on the Strength and Grit of Pioneer Women,” borrowing some artifacts from the DUP museum and featuring artistic interpretations of Utah women pioneers. ... The “Echoes” exhibit is set up from Nov. 6 to 10 in the Projects Gallery on the ground level of the Chase Fine Arts Center at USU. A reception is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 9.
