Last fall the Friends of Contemporary Art (FoCA) continued their annual tradition of acquiring a new artwork for the UMFA’s permanent collection of modern and contemporary art. Over an evening of dinner and dancing, FoCA members viewed and debated the merits of three potential acquisitions. Ultimately, the group voted to acquire a video work titled Untitled (Mylar) (2011) by New York-based artist William Lamson. Filmed in the Mojajave Desert, the silent video captures the brilliant reflections of a Mylar blanket as it is pushed, rolled, folded and carried by the wind across the arid landscape.
After a yearlong preliminary process. SLC’s best performance poets will compete for a spot to represent Salt Lake City at the 2015 National Poetry Slam! Headlining the event will be Chicago poet Tim Toaster Henderson. This will be a night of riveting performance poetry that is sure to shake fault lines.
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.

A Panel Discussion: Utah’s coal plants belch pollution into our skies and profoundly affect the airsheds of the entire four corners region. From contributing to global warming, to impacting health, and obscuring some of the state’s most impressive vistas and impacting rural tourist economies, there’s hardly an aspect of our lives that these coal plants don’t touch.
In the coming months, we have a unique opportunity to limit these emissions and demand stricter pollution controls from regulators.
Join HEAL Utah, The Utah Chapter, Sierra Club and our panel of experts to learn more about these coal plants and some upcoming opportunities to limit their lung busting, toxic emissions.
Please join us on Wednesday, April 1st for a provocative lecture from Dan Beard, former Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation and author of the new book, “Deadbeat Dams: Why We Should Abolish the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Tear Down Glen Canyon Dam.”
Beard reveals the desperate need to change western water policies and exposes the public to the lack of common sense, corruption, and utter waste of taxpayers’ money that he witnessed over a long government career spanning three decades. The faults of the present system of federally assisted water management efforts are amply detailed, and an agenda for reform is provided that can be used as ammunition by a new generation of water reformers.
