USU Employee Giving Campaign


Every year employees demonstrate an extraordinary spirit of community by participating in the USU Employee Giving Campaign. This year, the USU Employee giving campaign begins March 2 and lasts through March 31.

Employees can contribute to their passions: students, staff development and the local Community - the possibilities are unlimited. And every dollar given is more than just a gift; it is an investment in Utah State University. Your participation also boosts student recruitment and retention, helps foster the support of outside donors, advances academic research, study, and initiatives, provides development opportunities for staff and give back to this beautiful community we live in.

Visit employeegiving.usu.edu and make a donation today.

Utah Women Making History Exhibit


2020 marks three important anniversaries for the women’s movement. We are celebrating the 150th anniversary of the first Utah woman casting her ballot, the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, and the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. Brooke Smart’s illustrations celebrate the Utah women who worked to advance their communities. These are on display in the atrium of Merrill-Cazier Library now.

Latinx from the NEHMA Collection


Latinx works of art represent a growing part of the NEHMA collection and reflect a significant influence in Western American art. New acquisitions by Yolanda Gonzalez, Leo Limón, Paul Sierra and Eloy Torrez will be featured in Latinx from the Collection as well as a grouping of paños, artworks created on handkerchiefs by artists incarcerated in Texas penitentiaries.

Latinx from the NEHMA Collection is co-curated by USU Art History Professor Alvaro Ibarra and NEHMA Curator of Collections and Exhibitions Bolton Colburn.

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright


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.

Sky Above, Earth Below: A History of Western Landscape Photography


“Sky Above, Earth Below” traces the development of western landscape photography from the late 19th century to the 21st century, starting with early American photographers like Myra Albert Wiggins, Edward Curtis, and Karl Struss and concluding with contemporary photographers like Barry Andersen, Kimberly Anderson, Karalee Kuchar, and Charlotte Trolinger. 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).

Particle & Wave: PaperClay Illuminated


"Particle & Wave" features forty-five artists from across the world who incorporate paper pulp and organic fibers into their clay. The exhibition explores innovation, creativity and connection by sharing the breadth of work being created by artists spanning five continents who choose paperclay for its adaptability, tensile strength, translucency, and ecological and sustainable characteristics.

"Particle & Wave: PaperClay Illuminated" is organized by The International Paper Clay Exhibition Project, and curated by Peter Held.

Thomas Campbell: Lint Basket Supremeo and Unii Ciøn Yyikæ


Thomas Campbell is an interdisciplinary media maestro who creates eloquent and romantic narratives about the fringes of contemporary American culture in a variety of formats, including sculpture, ceramics, music, printmaking, painting, photography, drawing, and film.

A two-part, two-gallery sequence, "Lint Basket Supremeo" (a multi-medium survey) and "Unii Ciøn Yyikæ" (new works) give a sense of Campbell’s creative output over the last ten years leading up to today, including new works created during an artist residency at Utah State University’s Department of Art & Design last fall.

[CANCELED] Applied Mathematics Seminar: Numerical schemes for phase field models and its applications to biological...


Speaker: Giordano Tierra-Chica, Assistant Professor, University of North Texas

Abstract: In this talk I will discuss about some PDE systems to represent biological applications that are based on or involve the understanding of the rheology of complex fluids. In particular I will focus on ideas to design efficient and accurate numerical schemes for biofilms and vesicle membranes using phase field models. In fact, I will present an energetic variational approach to model biofilm interaction with fluid flows. The biofilm is assumed an incompressible ternary mixture of viscous and viscoelastic fluids that represents bacteria, EPS and solvent phases. The proposed model satisfies an overall dissipative energy law and is solved with an efficient unconditionally energy-stable splitting scheme that is able to capture large-scale events of biofilm deformation and detachment under different hydrodynamic conditions, results that are qualitatively consistent with laboratory experiments. Moreover, I will also talk about numerical schemes to simulate the deformation of vesicles membranes via minimizing the bending energy.
