Tiny Pricks

Arts/Entertainment

Tiny Pricks is a public art project created and curated by Diana Weymar. Contributors from around the world are stitching Donald Trump’s words into textiles, creating the material record of his presidency and of the movement against it. Tiny Pricks Project holds a creative space in a tumultuous political climate. The collection counterbalances the impermanence of Twitter and other social media, and Trump’s statements as president through the use of textiles that embody warmth, craft, permanence, civility, and a shared history. The daintiness and integrity of each piece stand in stark contrast to his presidency. Sandra Charlson organized local community members, faculty, staff, and students to participate in this project.

Place's and Faces of Utah's Coal Country

Arts/Entertainment

Noel A. Carmack is associate professor of art at USU Eastern. He received a BFA in illustration and MFA in drawing/painting from USU. About the work in this exhibition he says: Many of the coal mines, tipples, and powerhouse stacks in Utah are beginning to disappear, due to the decline of petroleum-based energy industries. The boom-and-bust economy of southeastern Utah is turning toward more favorable efficient energy sources, so the life and traditions of the men and women who are dependent on these industries are changing. These painings and drawings represent the deteriorating structures, the weathering marks left on the landscape, and the faces of the people who live and work in the area. The work is comprised of the following: 1) industrial landscapes, featuring the machinery, structures, and tools which have been used to mine or extract the natural resources of this area, and 2) portraits of the men and women whose lives are closely tied to eastern/southeastern Utah region.

The Day After Tomorrow: Art in Response to Turmoil and Hope

Exhibition

Our new reality is profoundly different than it was six months ago. Curated amid pandemic and protests, "The Day After Tomorrow: Art in Response to Turmoil and Hope" explores how artists respond to crisis, offering parallels to our own emotions and experiences this year.

"The Day After Tomorrow" is divided into three themes. "A Better Tomorrow" focuses on transcendence, alternate realities, the divine, afterlife, and bliss. "A Worse Yesterday" comprises works of art that address events that have shaken the world and thrown it into crises such as world wars, nuclear proliferation, AIDS, genocide, racism, and immigration. "Awry Ecosystem" focuses on art by artists concerned with the environment and how humans are changing it.

Also included is a Community Response Space, which will feature rotating exhibitions of work by local artists and where you can share your personal journey through an interactive display.

African American Art, Social Justice, and Identity: Works by Black Artists from the NEHMA Collection

Exhibition

"African American Art, Social Justice and Identity" addresses Black identity in the United States through works of art by ten African American artists and ephemera from collectives including the Black Panthers, spanning 1887-1989. Sourced from the NEHMA collection, these artworks provide compelling visual form to racism, discrimination, and inequality.

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.

Applied Mathematics Seminar: Need More Power: Energy Efficient Motion for Legged Robots

Conference/Seminar

Speaker: Dr. Mario Harper, Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, USU

ZOOM ID: 945 1753 3441 PWD: USUAMS

Abstract: I hope you come out of this talk knowing a little about how to constrain mathematical models and machine learning to enable walking, adaptable robots ready to work in the real world. Humans are quite good at walking and we often forget how complex this process, for very little energy we can move almost anywhere. Replicating this type of organic walking behavior is challenging in the best of circumstances, but it is compounded when the real world gets involved (foot-ground interaction is not easy to model). Now imagine a robot tasked with moving in an unstructured outdoor environment it has never experienced. Come and see how we approach complex issues in modern robotic systems, ask questions and perhaps you will find that the mathematics of robotics is interesting to you!
