Harmed, a body work by artist Stephanie Wilde (Boise, ID) is about the corporate greed of the few and its devastating effects on the many. She began this series of intimately detailed ink, acrylic and gold leaf works as a response to idle gossip in her backyard: a local corporate CEO misused his power in the mid 1990’s and the scandal made national headlines. Perplexed, Wilde wondered how this individual lost his moral compass. Considering the corporate downfall of companies since Wilde began this body of work, this is a question many of us find ourselves asking of today’s corporate leaders. Depicting the debauchery and excess of those in power as they control and manipulate circumstanced and others, Harmed is about loss: moral, financial and perhaps most disheartening, loss of faith in the corporate world.
Salt Lake Art Center’s exhibition of Sundance Film Festival New Frontier opens the door to new forms of creativity. The New Frontier artists and filmmakers reconfigure art, technology, film, and performance to explore narrative structure, the three-dimensionality of the cinematic image, and innovations in transmedia storytelling.
Hours Tuesday-Thursday & Saturday 11am-6pm, Friday 11am – 9pm

Collecting Knowledge: Renaissance Cabinets of Curiosity January 27 through May 15, 2011 at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts explores items that were typically found in cabinets of curiosity in sixteenth and seventeenth century Europe, including prints, books, scientific instruments, and objects obtained through travel. This exhibition examines the people who created cabinets of curiosity, their strategies for classifying and grouping items, and how they used this knowledge to make sense of their world.
During Fall Semester 2010, four graduate students in the University of Utah Department of Art and Art History gained first-hand knowledge of the work involved in creating an exhibition. The result of their hard work is the exhibition Collecting Knowledge: Renaissance Cabinets of Curiosity. The students were advised by Professor Sheila Muller and they worked closely with UMFA staff to complete all necessary steps for curating an exhibition— from developing exhibition themes to selecting the objects; from writing the object label text to planning the exhibition design; and from securing related public programs to creating an effective marketing plan.

“Go West, young man, go West and grow up with the country,” the newspaper editor Horace Greeley advised his readers in 1865. The familiar quotation* registers a number of attitudes and concerns that characterized mid-19th century America: beliefs surrounding societal progress and social evolution; beliefs (and doubts) about a stable and vigorous masculinity; and beliefs about independence and personal freedom. Such attitudes about the West intruded on and determined the kinds of stories that America came to tell about itself, the mythic ideas and iconographies it produced-stories and myths and icons that are alive today.
Go West brings together twenty contemporary artists who are engaged in an excavation of myths and ideologies of the old West. Working in a range of media (including painting, works on paper, sculpture, photography, and video), these artists offer up critical reflections on the West as both destination and destiny. Go West considers the varied reasons people came west over the years: some, like the Cherokee Indians, were forcibly moved west, while others, like the Mormons, sought exile here; some came in search of fame and fortune, while others staked their claim to a separatist space, away from mainstream society. The exhibition further explores such topics as: “promised lands,” the West as utopia, wilderness and land use, expansion and sprawl, and tropes of the frontiersman and cowboy.
