Eye Hand Mind: Selections fro the Africa Meets Africa Project @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center
Aug 23 – Oct 12 all-day
Eye Hand Mind: Selections fro the Africa Meets Africa Project @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center |  |  |

Exquisite objects, made for everyday use according to inherited styles of beadwork, weaving, pottery and homestead painting, reveal an astonishing integrity of design and innovation with contemporary materials and forms. And yet, the iconic master artists of rural southern Africa, national treasures, share great concern that their skill might not survive beyond their own generation.
Africa meets Africa brings these artists’ knowledge into the classroom with unique arts-skills learning methodology, integrating visual arts, history and mathematics. For example, students do geometry with their hands, as they make beadwork and weave according to inherited southern African styles. In this exhibition cultural expression is contextualized in relation to past and present needs.

CLOSING RECEPTION:
Thursday, October 6, 6 – 8 p.m.
Meet visiting guests Helene Smuts, founder of Africa Meets Africa non-profit education project, and Jackie Scheiber, Africa Meets Africa curriculum specialist and math educator.

Each level of mastery is based on consistency and duration, allowing participates to set individual goals.

A Bright New Boise @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Sep 1 @ 8:00 pm – Sep 17 @ 10:00 pm
A Bright New Boise @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Wasatch Theatre Company begins its 19th season with the regional premiere of the Obie Award-winning play, ‘A Bright New Boise,’ by playwright Samuel D. Hunter. ‘Boise’ is an unexpected dark comedy about faith, family and the importance of making human connections. Most of the action in the play takes place in the break room of a Hobby Lobby craft store in Idaho, where the seemingly innocuous Will applies for a job. No one knows he has recently fled his rural hometown after a scandalous tragedy involving his fundamentalist church. Will doesn’t particularly want to work there but he is a man on a mission – to bond with his estranged son before the impending Rapture. By enlisting the aid of his new co-workers, a group of eccentric characters also struggling to find their way, can Will succeed in winning the trust of his son before the end of the world?
Wasatch’s production is directed by Jim Martin and features Brian Pilling as Will, Sallie Cooper as Pauline, CJ Strong as Alex, Haley Jenkins as Ann, and Gordon Dunn as Leroy. The technical crew includes Danny Dunn (lights), Amy Allred (sound), Linda Eyring (costumes), Daniel Torrence (props), Kit Anderton (set), and Rosemary Fernandez (stage manager).
‘A Bright New Boise’ opens September 1, 2016 and runs Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays through September 17 in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center (138 West 300 South). Show time is 8:00 p.m., with 2:00 p.m. Saturday matinees on September 10 and 17. Tickets are $20.00 and are available through ArtTix (801-355-2787; www.arttix.org). More information about Wasatch can be found at www.wasatchtheatre.org.
