This is the Place @ Rio Gallery

This exhibition represents a group of visual artists as they consider this place so many call home. Just as we shape and build the landscape around us, the landscape has a remarkable effect on us, shaping and building culture. Utah was “the place” for many indigenous peoples prior to the arrival of the Mormon pioneers. More recently, the numbers of people who call Utah “home” have expanded to include the pioneers and their several generations of descendants, as well as contemporary migrants to the Wasatch Front. This exhibition explores the diversity and value of the community through artists, community participation and historical photographs. M-F 8-5. Gallery Stroll Opening August 16, 6-9pm

Raivo Puusemp: Dissolution @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Sep 6 all-day
Raivo Puusemp: Dissolution @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Raivo Puusemp: Dissolution is the first comprehensive overview of Puusemp’s work produced between the mid-1960s and late 1970s. Puusemp is a conceptual artist who is interested in steering people into unwittingly completing his pieces by taking an action the artist had laid out as the next obvious step.

Puusemp’s collection of press clippings, council meeting minutes and public documents from his brief stint as mayor of Rosendale (1975-1976), a small village, plagued by an overbearing tax structure and problems with its municipal utilities. Puusemp saw his position as an opportunity to take a political problem and morph it into an art work.
