Newspaper Clipping about the Three-phase Institute Building at UTC.
Newspaper clipping from the Week Ending March 23, 1968, highlights a ground-breaking ceremony held for the Institute building to be built at Utah Technical College. President Jay L. Nelson is in the photograph of the ground-breaking. Also included are Craig Bramwell, President N. Eldon Tanner, Dale Tingey and Bishop Robert L. Simpson. This ground-breaking is for the first of three phases of building.
Girl Ascending began with a photograph of a girl seemingly suspended in mid-air, holding onto a chain-link fence with one hand, her dress lifted by the breeze. The setting is commonplace: a baseball game, nondescript buildings, and a dirt field seen though the fence. Nevertheless, the improbable levitation and serene demeanor of the girl suggested the Ascension of the Blessed Virgin Mary to the artist, raised, as she was, on the symbolic imagery of Catholicism. Grounded in attentive observation of the world, Chicago-based photographer, Melissa Ann Pinney reveals how dreams and expectations of girlhood are constructed and communicated between mothers and daughters, society and friends. She intimately portrays her daughter, Emma, growing up and becoming an adolescent, providing fresh insights into her day to day life with family, friends and neighbors. One of eight children from a large, Catholic family, the artist has always been drawn to scenes of family that also express her interest in ritual, mystery and memory. While her photographs capture seemingly insignificant moments from a girl’s daily world, they signify mythic and heroic themes of the vital transformation that takes place when a girl enters into womanhood. Exhibition held in the Street Gallery space.
In celebration of and in collaboration with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Utah, and in honor of their 50 years of advocacy in defending civil liberties, the Salt Lake Art Center has organized “Liberties Under Fire.” This exhibition features artwork by five artists who depict or suggest pivotal civil liberties issues identified by the ACLU of Utah. To provide informed and unique perspectives about each issue, six prominent authors have been invited to write short personal essays. And to place these artworks and essays in a legal framework, the ACLU of Utah has provided short texts related to each issue. The root issue is the First Amendment – freedom of speech and expression – which is explored in an introduction by Katharine Coles, PhD, Utah Poet Laureate and Professor of English, University of Utah. The five civil liberties issues addressed by pairings of artists and writers include: Abuse of Power: artist Sue Coe and author Forrest S. Cuch; Church and State: artist Enrique Chagoya and author Terry Tempest Williams; LGBT Equality: artist John Trobaugh and playwright Julie Jensen; Racial Justice: artist Kara Walker and author Forrest Crawford; and, Torture, Imprisonment, and War: artist Jenny Holzer and author/journalist Mary Dickson. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
