Exciting news! Utah Museums Association's 2017 Award for Excellence in Statewide Collaboration was awarded to the Utah Humanities Museum on Main Street (MoMS) Program, which brought "The Way We Worked" to Union Station in January!
Utah Humanities coordinated the year-long tour of “The Way We Worked” exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street program to six host museums throughout the state (Ogden Union Station Museums, Hyrum City Museum, Museum of the San Rafael, Territorial Statehouse State Park Museum, Silver Reef Museum, and Park City Museum). Each of the six host museums has created meaningful local companion exhibits and public programming to engage their communities in a conversation about work in Utah. They also utilized the opportunity to benefit their individual organizations in deeper ways than merely hosting a traveling exhibition. Each host site reached out to its local community in new ways, sought out underrepresented voices and stories, and partnered with other local organizations to gain new audiences, and worked to strengthen themselves as vibrant community spaces. This huge project has required commitment and creativity from every organization involved, and all have worked hard to make “The Way We Worked” exhibition a truly statewide endeavor. Expected to reach upwards of 50,000 people, the project’s success is a testament to the strength of community, cooperation, and collaboration of the entire team. But even more than the public-facing outcomes, each institution is stronger for participating, for increasing its own capacity, and for building lasting relationships with statewide colleagues. This is a special project that truly exemplifies excellence in partnership and statewide collaboration.
Join us for First Friday Art Stroll tomorrow! We'll have a new exhibit in Gallery at the Station and a continuing exhibit up in the Myra Powell Gallery.
Gallery At The Station will exhibiting works by Karen Thurber & Megan Gibbons. Karen’s work is a wonderful play of energy and color that depicts natural landscapes and intimate floral portraits within the mediums of pastels and acrylic paint. Megan’s bold and thoughtful oil paintings focus on human and environment interactions principally focused on the physical form within modernity.
The Myra Powell Gallery will continue the exhibit by nature photographer Ralph Johnson. Ralph’s work portrays the majesty and beauty of nature with prestine clarity and an impeccable detail for compostion.
