In 2002, Salt Lake City presented the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, hosting 2,500 Olympian athletes from across the globe. Though many associate the Olympics with athletic achievement, the arts have played an integral role since the ancient Olympic Games. The 2002 Winter Cultural Olympiad Arts Festival was founded to celebrate the accomplishments of Utah's greatest artists. In conjunction with the 2002 Arts Festival, the Springville Museum of Art hosted an exhibition celebrating 150 years of Utah's art history. The featured artworks were carefully chosen by a team of art experts, using rigorous criteria to ensure diverse representation and superior quality. The final exhibition of over 300 works presented one of the most significant surveys of Utah's art history ever compiled. As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Salt Lake City Olympics, we want to once again celebrate the achievements of Utah's many artists, both living and deceased. This exhibition contains a small selection of the artworks originally displayed in 2002.

Each movie will include an intro and post-screening discussion with a special guest. Optional food items from local businesses and various surprises can be expected too! What will the 2023 Electric Film Series lineup consist of? As was the case with 2021 and 2022, 2023 will see us take an epic journey through the history of film one decade at a time starting with the 1900s/1910s and closing out with the 2020s. That's right!

<em>A Greater Utah</em> is an ambitious survey of artists living and working in Utah today, curated by six leading curators, cultural programmers, and artists working in a myriad of diverse Utah counties and regions—from the rural to the desert to the capital city that destabilizes the singular voice of a set curatorial practice. It serves a state-wide audience, exploring the most pressing issues of Utah, and gives authorship and authority to the six curators to select work that best defines the topics and themes affecting their region. The exhibition’s varied and collective themes explore land use, climate change, identity, Indigenous rights and practices, language, social change, marginalization, geography, and what it means to be a Utahn today. It captures the transformative demographic, environmental, and cultural changes in our state today and seeks to gather and connect our neighbors around the intersection of art, culture, and geography. The exhibition provides a site for oft-overlooked geographic and artistic centers, expands narratives and definitions of the local, and cultivates and grows a multitude of perspectives by bringing makers together. It also functions as an intimate portrayal of Utah grown from conversations between curators and artists, revealing the under-examined history of artmaking and emerging practices and serving as a snapshot of artmaking today in our ever-changing state. Ultimately, as the title suggests, Utah is a greater place when these voices, perspectives, and concerns are included to help push conversations forward about the future of our collective state.

How do rocks, trees, and holes in the Earth sustain your daily life? Artist and researcher Nina Elder uses art to answer this question, telling honest stories about the complex connections between humans and nature. In this traveling show, students are invited to view Nina’s large-scale realistic drawings to get curious about mines and clear cut forests. These permanently changed places show a legacy of industry, both as scars in the landscape and sites that support our needs. The exhibition asks “What sustains?” The Earth endures, and so do the marks of human impact. Society is turning toward greater sustainability, yet we still extract our necessary materials from the planet. As the Art Truck travels around Utah, audiences will explore their relationship to the environment. The list on the Truck’s exterior is Nina’s futile attempt to exhaustively list what sustains us: our ecosystems, networks, souls, communities, and cultural practices. Audiences are invited to contribute to an ongoing and growing list of what sustains life in Utah. Thank you for collaborating with us and sustaining the vibrant contemporary art scene throughout the state!
