S. military involvement, relocation to internment camps, and the establishment of Japanese Buddhist and Christian churches are included in the archive.
The J. Willard Marriott Library, in partnership with the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, is hosting Vesalius: Celebrating 500 Years of Innovation, celebrating the contributions of Andreas Vesalius to education, anatomy, and design. From July 11 through October 3, the Marriott Library will display rare books, prints, anatomical models, and other materials related to the work of Vesalius throughout the building. Also on display will be facsimile plates from Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomical studies. These exhibitions are free and open to the public. Families and children are welcome.
The Road Home Apple Tree is an annual campaign that collects new back-to-school clothing, shoes and backpacks for more than 100 children living in the Road Home, a Salt Lake family homeless shelter. It’s a great program that involves the community and helps deserving children feel confident starting a new school year. This is the 10th year of the campaign and each year it is amazing to see the excitement of the kids as they open their backpack filled with new items that were picked out personally for them.

CUAC is pleased to present solo exhibitions by two conceptual sculptors, Piper Brett, based in Philadelphia, PA, and Allison Lacher, based in Springfield, IL. Both have exhibited extensively around the United States and are recipients of multiple awards and fellowships.
Piper Brett presents Poolside, an installation of “painting”, sculpture, and a cell phone photo taken of a former porn star at a coffee shop in Amsterdam. Most items in Poolside originated in the urban landscape of North Philadelphia and detail a non-linear narrative and random aspects of Brett’s life, associations, and memories. Sculptural materials include a stick, a gold shopping cart hanging from the ceiling, a basketball with a handle, as well as a faux stone replica of the Maneken Pis fountain, famous in Belgium. Brett has also covered the gallery floor with a painting of water. Her installation anesthetizes backyard pool parties and the urban/suburban experience.
Allison Lacher’s Nonnative relies on the impetus behind an oft-generalized, catch-all cultural romance with the American West that spawns from landscape, climate, rich opportunity, and remaining lures that exist in our minds. Exotic Saguaro cacti, vaguely figurative and despite a dominant presence and large scale, seemingly greet affectionately with open arms and playfully disarm through earnest glimmer. The installation environment courts the audacity of optimism that spawns the pursuit of dreams and reinvention through forging ahead into unknown territory, while subtly acknowledging a looming naiveté. This exhibition is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
CUAC thanks our sponsors for these exhibitions: 3form, Big O Tires, and the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
Explore the Enduring Bond between Humans and Horses:
The Natural History Museum of Utah is excited to host The Horse.
Over time, humans have preyed upon horses, domesticated them, bred them for work and play, and forged deep emotional and spiritual connections with them. Come discover the fascinating story of how humans have shaped the horse, and how the horse, in turn has shaped us.
This special exhibition includes cultural objects from around the world, a hand-painted diorama depicting the evolution of the horse, and interactives that invite you to test your strength in horsepower, identify different breeds, and peek inside a life-size, moving horse.
Explore one of Utah’s most important horse stories – the connection of the Ute people to horses. The Ute were among the first North American tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish in the 1600s. Discover how horses transformed Ute life in ways that continue to reverberate today.
The Horse opens July 19 to members and July 21 to all guests.
Horses are integral to our history and touch us as individuals. Celebrate our bond with these magnificent creatures!
