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.”

Faith Distress Support Group

Workshop/Training

This group is an opportunity for students to get together in a safe environment, learn from, and support each other. Each week, a discussion will be held of pertinent issues related to faith that create stress (e.g. having doubts or internal conflict finding spirituality, faith transitions, finding a place of belonging, talking to those of different faiths, etc.). Topics are motivated by participants each week.
The group is co-facilitated by Monique Frazier, a psychologist from USU Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and Bonnie Glass-Coffin, Anthropology professor and Director of the Interfaith Leadership Certificate Program.

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.
