The Face of Utah Sculpture 9

Every year the Face of Utah Sculpture provides Utah artists a forum to present Utah culture through sculptural form. The origins of this dynamic exhibit, envisioned nine years ago by glass artist Dan Cummings, features both well-known and emerging Utah sculptors, showcasing both traditional and contemporary sculpture in a variety of techniques, styles, mediums and forms. The result is an exciting and eclectic mix of excellence in artistry in countless forms!

Jodee Bitner’s photography will also be on display, capturing unique angles or different perspectives of her father and brother’s sculptures, creating entirely new works of art.

Everyone is invited to meet the artists at the opening reception on July 11 from 6 – 8 p.m. Admission is free, and includes food, live music by Christian Coleman, a cash bar, and the finest new works by Utah’s best sculptors.

Key Largo – Free screening @ Salt Lake City Library
Aug 13 @ 7:00 pm

In this film noir classic, an approaching hurricane traps embittered World War II veteran Frank McCloud (Humphrey Bogart) in a hotel on the Florida Keys with ruthless gangster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson). As the storm rages outside, tensions simmer between Rocco and McCloud while sparks fly between McCloud and his war buddy’s widow (Lauren Bacall). We’ll focus on the hurricane that creates the movie’s suspenseful setting in a post-film discussion with severe storm expert Dr. Edward Zipser, a professor in the University of Utah’s Department of Atmospheric Sciences. Discover what scientists have learned about the factors that make some hurricanes so deadly and destructive (think Katrina 2005 and Sandy 2012), get a glimpse at a few of the newest research tools, and learn how real storms differ from the Hollywood versions.

The Invisible War @ Price City Auditorium

The Invisible War @ Price City Auditorium

THE INVISIBLE WAR is a groundbreaking investigation about one of America’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem—today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. Focusing on the powerfully emotional stories of rape victims, this is a moving indictment of the systemic cover-up of military sex crimes, chronicling the women’s struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice.

My Summer Of Love @ Brewvies

A tale of obsession and deception, and the struggle for love and faith in a world where both seem impossible. The film charts the emotional and physical hothouse effects that bloom one summer for two young women: Mona, behind a spiky exterior, hides an untapped intelligence and a yearning for something beyond the emptiness of her daily life; Tamsin is well-educated, spoiled and cynical. Complete opposites, each is wary of the other’s differences when they first meet, but this coolness soon melts into mutual fascination, amusement and attraction. Adding volatility is Mona’s older brother Phil, who has renounced his criminal past for religious fervor—which he tries to impose upon his sister. Mona, however, is experiencing her own rapture. “We must never be parted,” Tamsin intones to Mona but can Mona
completely trust her?

Raivo Puusemp: Dissolution @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Aug 16 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.
