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!

December Artist: Daniel Owen Stolpe @ I.J. and Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center

Daniel Owen Stolpe was born in Los Angeles, California in 1939. He obtained an Associates of Arts degree at Pasadena City College in 1960. He attended Los Angeles Country Art Institute (OTIS) on a scholarship, from 1961-1962. Later Stolpe apprenticed under artist Don La Viere Turner, in Glendora; and from 1965 to 1966, with Master Printer Joseph Funk, in Venice, both studios located in California. Stolpe works in the tradition of European figurative style, heavily influences by German Expressionism to create interpretations of mythical themes. He is represented in over 25 major collections, both nationally and internationally, including Fogg Art Museum, Grunwald Collection (UCLA), H.R.C. University of Texas, Portland Art Museum and the Smithsonian Institution Washington DC. He has held over 50 solo exhibits over three continents.

Free Art Talk: “The Nature Theater of Christo and Jeanne-Claude” by Professor Jonathan Fineberg @ Kimball Art Center
Dec 4 @ 5:00 pm
Free Art Talk:  "The Nature Theater of Christo and Jeanne-Claude" by Professor Jonathan Fineberg @ Kimball Art Center

“The Nature Theater of Christo and Jeanne-Claude” by Professor Jonathan Fineberg, Visiting Distinguished Professor, UC-Irvine and Edward William and Jane Marr Gutgsell Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Professor Fineberg, who has followed the work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude closely for more than 35 years and written often about them, will offer some fresh thoughts about the way in which art affects politics, putting the work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude in a larger context of art that we think of as “political.” He will also draw on examples ranging from Chartres Cathedral to the performance practice of the contemporary artist Andrea Fraser. Previewing part of his forthcoming book “Modern Art at the Border of Mind and Brain”(University of Nebraska Press, August 2015), Fineberg will speculate on how a profoundly political and social art practice, like that of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, may affect our social thought and even the neural networks of the human brain. Admission is FREE but space is limited so please RSVP on our website www.kimballartcenter.org/art-talk or call 435-649-8882.
