BYU Fine Arts Calendar for April 2006

At the BYU Museum of Art:

“Tapestries: The Great 20th Century Modernists,” will be on view from April 21 through July 24 and will reveal the beauty and splendor of one of the most celebrated art forms of the past through the designs of the great modernists of the 20th century. The exhibition will feature 19 woven designs by Lurçat, Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Jean Arp, Fernand Léger, Le Corbusier, Henri Matisse, Vassily Kandinsky, Victor Vasarely, Georges Braque and Marc Chagall.

The Museum of Art offers a Monday night program centered on the signature work in its collection. This 40-minute program, titled “The Healing Hand: A Family Presentation on Carl Bloch’s ‘Christ Healing the Sick at Bethesda,’” will be held the first Monday evening of each month at 7 and 8 p.m.

The exhibit “Nostalgia and Technology: Embracing the ‘New’ through Art and Design” will continue through May 13. The exhibition explores the role of art as a mediator in society’s acceptance and use of new technologies in the home.

The exhibit “Juan Rulfo’s Mexico: Photographs of Heritage and Identity” will continue through May 29. As a Latin American author and photographer of the 20th century, Rulfo captured a Mexican landscape and a people marked by violence and poverty. The photography exhibit explores the cultural identity of the Hispanic people and illustrates their common heritage.

A new exhibition of the museum’s permanent collection, “American Dreams: Selected Works from the Museum’s Permanent Collection of American Art,” replaced “150 Years of American Painting,” which had been on view for 11 years. The exhibition will include prints, sculpture and photography, as well as painting. “American Dreams” will be divided into three thematic sections: “The Dream of Eden,” “American Aspirations” and “Envisioning America.”

Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. For more information on exhibits and museum programs, call (801) 422-ARTS.
