December 2003

All month

"On the Road with C.C.A. Christensen: The Moving Panorama" continues at the BYU Museum of Art. Carl Christian Anton (C.C.A.) Christensen, a Danish immigrant who worked and lived in Utah, was one of several Utah artists to use this popular art form. Christensen produced four panoramas, two of which are being exhibited in the Museum of Art. The exhibition presents two large moving panoramas. Accompanying the exhibition is a re-enactment of the 19th-century performance given by Christensen when he traveled his panorama to localities throughout Utah and Idaho. The 40-minute panorama performance will be presented every Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. and every Thursday evening at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. in the gallery.

"150 Years of American Painting" continues at the BYU Museum of Art. A permanent collection of paintings by renowned artists such as Frederic Edwin Church, Maynard Dixon, John Singer Sargent and many local Utah favorites such as Mahonri Young are presented.

"Outside Inside: Fragments of Place" is now on display at the BYU Museum of Art. This enigmatic exhibition title refers to a project in which seven Australian artists were commissioned to examine the extended community that has gathered along the Wasatch Front. These artists were selected for their ability to sensitively analyze cultures, social behaviors, geographic spaces and historical foundations, and manifest their research in thought-provoking ways. "Outside Inside" is on display through April 27, 2004. Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend.

"Contemporary Spaces, Underlying Culture" is on display at the BYU Museum of Art. The exhibition brings together five artists who use photography as a means of exploring ideas related to a sense of place, cultural identity, human interaction and the nature of artistic expression in contemporary life. "Contemporary Spaces" is on display through Saturday, Feb. 21, 2004.
