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).

Entrepreneur Leadership Series - Joel Clark & Jon Clark

Panel Discussion/Presentation

Joel Clark & Jon Clark, Founders of Kodiak Cakes
Jon started Kodiak Cakes in 1994 based on his Mother’s suggestion of creating a whole-grain food mix company. At the time, he had completed his bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Utah and was working for the OC Tanner Company in Salt Lake City. In 1995, Jon’s brother, Joel, came on board and helped sell Kodiak Cakes in resort towns and gift stores. In 1997, when Jon decided to go back to the University of Utah for an MBA, he turned the tiny company over to his brother Joel who has developed it into a nationally recognized brand. Joel was a 23-year- old economics major attending the University of Utah when the company was handed to him. Over the next 12 years, Joel juggled side jobs, earned an MBA from Oxford University, and still found time to make Kodiak Cakes a success.
