Collecting on the Edge Part II

Arts/Entertainment

Modern and contemporary art created in the American West, manifesting an independent spirit and embodying unique ideas, has been largely written out of the mainstream narrative of art history or placed in unhelpful contexts. "Collecting on the Edge," featuring work by 172 artists from the collection of the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University in Logan Utah, aims to correct that situation. Texts accompanying each artwork, by eighty-one critics, art historians, curators, gallerists, artists, and collectors, provide illuminating insights into the works and their creators.

In an introductory essay art critic Michael Duncan exposes the provincialism and regionalist thinking that has dictated mainstream views of modernism: “Many of the nation’s most daring, innovative, and iconoclastic works have been ignored…simply because they were made on the wrong side of the Mississippi.”

Size Matters

Arts/Entertainment

A one-man show performed by the writer himself, Size Matters tackles bullies and body issues using comedic honesty that we don’t usually hear from men. Ray is on a self-imposed crash diet two months before his wedding. While his fiancée loves him regardless, Ray is reminded of his continued girth by his comedy career, and blindsided by a visit from his biggest fan; his overweight ten-year-old nephew.

Clybourne Park

Arts/Entertainment

Clybourne Park portrays fictional events set immediately after A Raisin in the Sun and fifty years later. The play is loosely based on historical events that took place in the city of Chicago. Act One takes place in 1959, as white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
