Beyond Right and Wrong @ Salt Lake City Library

This feature documentary tells the stories of people who both endured and perpetrated cruelty and aggression in the genocide in Rwanda, the violence in Israel/Palestine, and the “troubles” in Northern Ireland. This film focuses on extreme situations but is actually the human story of everyday possibilities in life. After the blood has dried, treaties are negotiated and screams have turned to silence, victims and perpetrators face an uneasy and painful peace. All wounds have not healed. The eighty-minute film portrays the resilience of humanity when facing the chasm between rage and acceptance.

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.

Delicate, yet hearty and palette pleasing, mushrooms add texture and flavor to a variety of cuisines and dishes. But which of the thousands of species of mushrooms is edible, and which will kill you? We’ll begin to learn this important distinction in class, where we will discuss the basics of mushroom hunting, which mushrooms in Utah and surrounding states are edible, and of course, cooking with mushrooms. Our field trip will take us to the Uinta mountains, where we will hunt for boletus edulis (porcini), chanterelle, agaricus campestris (button), and morels. Field trip transportation is by carpool. To register or for more information, call 801-587-LIFE (5433) or visit lifelong.utah.edu.
