LOGAN — Artists trying to understand the world through the lenses of their creativity are featured in a new exhibit at the Merrill-Cazier Library.

Presented by the Utah Arts & Museums’ Traveling Exhibition program, “What Is It You Plan To Do …” includes work created by artists who are exploring their world in various ways but all with the objective of understanding it better.

The impetus for the exhibit came from in 1992 Mary Oliver poem “The Summer Day,” which ends with the acclaimed lines, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

This exhibit seeks to explore that question.

Viewers of this exhibit will want to spend time with each piece, to deeply look and think about it, and afterwards consider taking the time to take notice of their world deeply and think about “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

“What Do You Plan To Do…” will be located in the main atrium at the Merrill-Cazier Library, 3000 Old Main Hill, from May 2 to July 13. Accompanying educational materials are available. For more information on viewing the exhibition, please visit
