This spring, Bob the Builder™ and his Can-Do Crew invite aspiring builders and their families to help get the job done as the hands-on Bob the Builder – Project: Build It traveling museum exhibit visits Discovery Gateway: The Children’s Museum of Utah May 17 – September 6. This 2,000-square-foot multimedia exhibit is inspired by HIT Entertainment’s top-rated television series, “Bob the Builder™ – Project: Build It.” It will replicate elements from Bob the Builder’s world in Sunflower Valley, inviting exploration, inspiring teamwork and bringing environmentally friendly building themes to life for children and families.
The story told by this archive begins with the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants who came here to work in the railroad, mining, and agricultural industries. Included are records, photographs, journals, oral histories, and films from their settlement. Salt Lake City’s Japantown, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and other U. S. military involvement, relocation to internment camps, and the establishment of Japanese Buddhist and Christian churches are included in the archive.

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!
