Eye Hand Mind: Selections fro the Africa Meets Africa Project @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center
Aug 23 – Oct 12 all-day
Eye Hand Mind: Selections fro the Africa Meets Africa Project @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center |  |  |

Exquisite objects, made for everyday use according to inherited styles of beadwork, weaving, pottery and homestead painting, reveal an astonishing integrity of design and innovation with contemporary materials and forms. And yet, the iconic master artists of rural southern Africa, national treasures, share great concern that their skill might not survive beyond their own generation.
Africa meets Africa brings these artists’ knowledge into the classroom with unique arts-skills learning methodology, integrating visual arts, history and mathematics. For example, students do geometry with their hands, as they make beadwork and weave according to inherited southern African styles. In this exhibition cultural expression is contextualized in relation to past and present needs.

CLOSING RECEPTION:
Thursday, October 6, 6 – 8 p.m.
Meet visiting guests Helene Smuts, founder of Africa Meets Africa non-profit education project, and Jackie Scheiber, Africa Meets Africa curriculum specialist and math educator.

McRay Magleby, Jr. graduated from Brigham Young University in 1969 with a bachelor’s degree in art. He then served as creative designer of BYU Publications & Graphics (now called BYU Graphics) until 1996. In 1987 BYU awarded him with the Honorary Alumni Award.

Along with teaching at both the University of Utah and BYU, Magleby was commissioned for several historic events. He created the first Cultural Olympiad poster for the 2002 Olympics and he also designed a carving for the Governor’s Mansion for the 100th anniversary of Utah. He also designed the Wave of Peace poster, commemorating the 40th anniversary of the bombing on Hiroshima.
In 2008 McRay (Mac) retired from his professorship at the U of U. Since 1987 Magleby has been teaching students how to be creative. He told them, “Being creative is risky; however, where the risks are great, the rewards are greater.”
In April and May 2012 Magleby’s art was featured in the Covey Center for the Arts exhibit Seasons in the Rockies: Landscapes by McRay Magleby.
