BYU Fine Arts and Entertainment Calendar for July 2006

At the BYU Museum of Art:

  • “Tapestries: The Great 20th Century Modernists,” on view through July 24, reveals 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 features 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 exhibit “Juan Rulfo’s Mexico: Photographs of Heritage and Identity” will continue through July 8. 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 features prints, sculpture and photography, as well as painting. “American Dreams” is divided into three thematic sections: “The Dream of Eden,” “American Aspirations” and “Envisioning America.”

  • “Just Enough Is More: The Graphic Design of Milton Glaser” will be on display through Oct. 7 at the museum. The exhibit explores the conceptual development of Glaser’s work from preliminary drawings to finished designs and reveal how he arrives at successful designs by including, in his words, “just enough.” The approximately 100 works in this exhibition will include original drawings, sketchbooks, paintings, lithographs, silk screens and mass-produced posters that will give viewers an intimate look into Glaser’s design process by exploring the evolution of his designs. Admission to all exhibits is free. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.
