Play

Segment 1:

Traffic congestion, a lack of parking and issues between pedestrians, bikes and vehicles aren’t just city issues. As more and more people want access to Big Cottonwood Canyon, Little Cottonwood Canyon and Mill Creek Canyon, Salt Lake County is mapping out ways to accommodate development while providing environmental protections. On Tuesday, we’ll talk about the county’s Canyon Transportation Studies and what they could mean for recreating and living in the Wasatch Front canyons.

Guests:

  • Cottonwood Heights Mayor Kelvyn Cullimore
  • Cathy Kahlow, U.S. Forest Service
  • Carl Fisher, Save Our Canyons

Segment 2:

Friends remember LeConte Stewart setting up an easel and paints in a neighbor’s driveway and capturing the lonely barns and wide-open spaces of Kaysville on canvas. As one of Utah’s major talents, Stewart reveled in creating impressionist-influenced landscapes and depicting structures in rural isolation. On Tuesday, we’ll discuss a new coffee table book that explores Stewart’s unique brand of Depression-era art.

Guests:

  • Dr. Donna Poulton, Utah Museum of Fine Arts and co-author, “LeConte Stewart Masterworks”
  • Dr. James Poulton, psychologist, co-author, “LeConte Stewart Masterworks”
  • Dr. Vern Swanson, Springville Museum of Art and co-author, “LeConte Stewart Masterworks”
