Ecology and Historical Archaeology of Great Salt Lake @ Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business Auditorium, Westminster College
May 24 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Ecology and Historical Archaeology of Great Salt Lake @ Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business Auditorium, Westminster College |  |  |

Since the shorelines of Lake Bonneville receded, Great Salt Lake has featured prominently in the natural and cultural history of North America and beyond. Millions of birds rely on the productive environment for breeding, nesting, and refueling during migration, feasting on the ample food supplies in and around the lake. Humans possess a close connection to the lake as well, from early Paleoindians hunting mammoths on its marshy shores, to Fremont villages and agricultural fields nestled at its shores. More recently, the lake has been seen as a place of recreation and exploitation. The salty brine featured as a major recreational draw, supporting several different bathing resorts from Black Rock, to Lakeside, to Saltair (I, II, and III). Capitalists also saw the lake as a much more lucrative endeavor for exploitation through salt evaporation, brine shrimp harvesting and even market hunting. We all, birds included, have a stake in the future of Great Salt Lake.

History nerd Chris Merritt (Utah State Historic Preservation Office) and Great Salt Lake nerd Jaimi Butler (biologist and Coordinator of Great Salt Lake Institute) will talk about modern research collaboration attempts to bridge the entire gap of Great Salt Lake’s multi-thousand year human-environment interactions, and spur a new century of engagement for a new generation of lake lovers. In other words, we will talk about “Old Crap, Bird Crap and Learned Crap”.

The Utah Arts Festival brings art to life at Library Square through awe-inspiring performances, artistic expression, and surprising discoveries at the state’s largest outdoor multi-disciplinary arts event June 21-24.

The Utah Arts Festival features 160+ visual artists and 100+ performing arts groups, drawing 80,000+ participants each June to celebrate artistic expression in the heart of Salt Lake City. The Festival includes seven performing venues of top world, national and local musicians and performers and program slates in literary arts, visual arts, kids activities, dance performances, musical commissions, street theater, art & technology, urban arts, film and culinary arts. During this four-day celebration of the arts, Festival patrons will discover the sky is not the limit—courtesy of BANDALOOP.

In its 42nd year, the Utah Arts Festival welcomes BANDALOOP, an internationally renowned dance company that awakens the human spirit and activates public spaces. In what they dub vertical dance, BANDALOOP seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography, and the art of climbing—by utilizing the unique curving glass façade of the Downtown Library as their stage. BANDALOOP will perform each night during the 2018 Utah Arts Festival.
