Fall Film Series: Creativity in Focus - Tim's Vermeer @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Co-presented with the Utah Film Center. Additional support provided by CUAC and Modern West Fine Art.

Tim’s Vermeer
A Penn and Teller Film
80 min | 2013 | USA | Rated PG-13
Screens in English and Dutch with English subtitles.

Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: how did seventeenth-century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) manage to paint so photo-realistically—150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning eight years, Jenison’s adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces; on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney; and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the Queen’s collection.

Nov 11 @ 6:00 pm
UCCD World Affairs Lecture: Erika George - Not My Life: The Human Costs and Rights, Consequences of Trafficking @ Vieve Gore Concert Hall in the Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

This program will begin with a short film Not My Life—the first film to depict the cruel and dehumanizing practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Following the screening, Professor George will present an overview of the human rights consequences of trafficking and the high costs to children when protections are not in place. She will provide a survey of how US legal reforms, global business initiatives, and consumer choices can eradicate the exploitation of children and contribute to change.
Professor George earned a BA with honors from the University of Chicago and a JD from Harvard Law School, where she served as articles editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, and holds an MA in international relations from the University of Chicago. She is a frequent speaker on issues related to women’s rights, human rights, and the rights and experiences of racial minorities.

This event is a program of the World Affairs Councils of America, with support provided by a grant from Carlson & the Carlson Family Foundation.

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.
