Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art
The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art will hold its next Museum + Music concert on Sunday, December 3 at 3PM in the Caine Performance Hall located on the Utah State University Logan campus. Students from the USU Music Department will present a program exploring different facets of the visual art and music of the Depression era West. In doing so they will examine a myriad of artistic responses to the crisis, including how government “New Deal” programs helped to foster a sense of shared identity and purpose in the face of daily personal hardships. Music will include selections from the popular, classical and jazz music of the time, juxtaposed with visual art inspired by the experience of the Great Depression. Museum + Music is free and open to the public with a reception following the performance.
