The Stegner Center’s twentieth annual symposium focuses on Air Quality: Health, Energy, and Economics. Across the nation, great strides have been made addressing air pollution over the last several decades, especially following adoption of the federal Clean Air Act in 1970. Nevertheless, in the West and elsewhere, air quality remains a vexing environmental, economic, and public health dilemma. Families in polluted areas face asthma and other health risks, businesses choose not to locate because of air quality concerns, and the overall quality of life is diminished. This Symposium will examine the multifaceted problem of air pollution, with panels and speakers addressing its causes, health and environmental impacts, tensions with energy needs and economic development, its relationship with social structures and ethics, and possible legal and regulatory solutions. The Symposium, as usual, is interdisciplinary, with speakers from the sciences and social sciences, academia, government, industry, and the legal profession.

Cooper is suspicious of his wife. Hannah simply wants to move on. A/VERSION OF EVENTS is a claustrophobic road trip about healing at different speeds, getting trapped in the wrong memories and whether or not we can outrun ourselves. Inspired by the short life of the playwright’s brother, born with Trisomy 18, it’s about how we manage to live, and be in love with, a person that interprets life and death differently than we do.

Date: Thursday, March 5th
Beginning March 6 and running through April 17, artist Mark England exhibits his landscape paintings in “Human Landscapes.” Hannah Vaughn and Kevin Arthofer use weather maps, data graphics, and projections on sculpture to document weather along the Wasatch Front in their installation “You Are Here.” An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 6, from 6 to 8 PM.
Mark England, a well-known Utah landscape painter, focuses on how individuals see themselves through landscape and impose upon it their values. He uses full-sized figures within the landscapes, thus creating a whole new relationship and raising many questions. England twists perspectives, visually and historically, by juxtaposing unrelated buildings and events to produce a scene that could take place at any point in time. “In a sense, my paintings are anthropological; in them, I often dwell on the values, activities, and events of ancient and contemporary cultures, ‘tracing’ the traces they left behind,” says England. “These are records of how we impact, leave our mark, our history, on the earth.”
The destination marker “You Are Here” takes on new meaning in the exhibition of the same name by Hannah Vaughn and Kevin Arthofer. Using an approach that is both scientific and abstract, the artists seek to overlay the unseen processes on the well-known domain of the Wasatch Front. Using topographical and environmental data, visual representations reveal environmental fluxes that are not otherwise perceived in daily life. Through “maps” that interpret hydrological and experiential data, Vaughn and Arthofer introduce an intimate version of the Wasatch Font over time that is both science and experience. Central to the exhibit is a large topographical map cast of plaster that becomes the surface on which data and time-lapse experience is projected.
Beginning March 6 and running through April 17, letterpress artist David Wolske exhibits his prints based on the letters W-O-R-D. The exhibition titled “Vessels” will be shown in the Park Gallery at the The Art Barn. An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 6, from 6 to 8 PM.
For Wolske, the beauty of words stems from the inherent potential for a series of straight and curved strokes from each letter to come together in countless configurations to create infinite meanings. The shape of the letters becomes the tool for the artist. To capture the beauty of letters, Wolske developed a printing technique that he calls an “isotype,” wherein parts of letters are masked off to isolate their linear and artistic components. The colored prints are then rearranged, reassembled, and layered to compose abstract “phrases” and “paragraphs” that celebrate linguistic malleability.
Wolske is the creative director of the Book Arts Program and Red Butte Press at the University of Utah.
Dreams and the Environment
Friday evening Lecture Description
In this lecture participants will learn about “The Global Dream Initiative.” This advocacy calls
for a recognition of the trauma in the natural and urban landscapes along with the need to
participate in their healing. Here we discover that the world’s suffering appears, in the living
images of people’s dreams. Simply said, ‘people can become depressed because nature is
The Global Dream Initiative develops a forum to see and hear the world’s dreams. We also
will learn how to begin utilizing these dreams to create new and more generative methods
of attending to the growing perils facing nature. New ways of engagement that are not
trapped in the cultural, political, economic, and environmental approaches that now are
failing us will be presented. This is a model for community as well as planetary activism. In
this lecture the “call to action” emerges from the dreaming psyche and is in service to the
landscapes we hold dear.
Day: March 6th
Location: Downtown Salt Lake City Library
