Stegner Lecture with Jim Steenburgh- “Secrets of the Greatest Snow on Earth:  Weather, Climate Change and Finding Deep Powder in Utah’s Wasatch Mountains and Around the World” @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law

Utah has long claimed to have the greatest snow on Earth—the state itself has even trademarked the phrase. In Secrets of the Greatest Snow on Earth, Jim Steenburgh investigates Wasatch weather, exposing the myths, explaining the reality, and revealing how and why Utah’s powder lives up to its reputation. Steenburgh also examines ski and snowboard regions beyond Utah, making this book a meteorological guide to mountain weather and snow climates around the world.

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.

UCCD World Affairs Lecture: Jeff Greenwald – Thirteen Tips for the Accidental Ambassador @ Vieve Gore Concert Hall in the Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory
Jan 27 @ 6:00 pm
UCCD World Affairs Lecture: Jeff Greenwald - Thirteen Tips for the Accidental Ambassador @ Vieve Gore Concert Hall in the Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Travel is now the world’s largest industry. How can the economic power of tourism help promote human rights and the environment? One solution is for travelers to “vote with their wings,” visiting countries with high scores in human rights, social welfare, and environmental protection. By following Jeff Greenwald’s 13 common-sense precepts on the road, travelers can become empowered to change the world.

Oakland-based writer and activist Jeff Greenwald is the executive director and cofounder of Ethical Traveler, a nonprofit organization dedicated to human rights and environmental protection. The author of six acclaimed travel books (including Shopping for Buddhas, now in its 25th Anniversary Edition), he also wrote and performs in a one-man show, Strange Travel Suggestions.

The Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series is presented by the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy in partnership with Westminster College.

All lectures are free and open to the public, and are held in the
Vieve Gore Concert Hall, Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 E., Salt Lake City.
