The Horse @ Natural History Museum of Utah
Oct 27 all-day
The Horse @ Natural History Museum of Utah | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

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!

Fall Film Series: Creativity in Focus - Tim's Vermeer @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Co-presented with the Utah Film Center. Additional support provided by CUAC and Modern West Fine Art.

Tim’s Vermeer
A Penn and Teller Film
80 min | 2013 | USA | Rated PG-13
Screens in English and Dutch with English subtitles.

Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: how did seventeenth-century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) manage to paint so photo-realistically—150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning eight years, Jenison’s adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces; on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney; and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the Queen’s collection.
