BYU Fine Arts and Entertainment Calendar for November 2008

BYU Fine Arts and Entertainment Calendar for November 2008

At the BYU Museum of Art:

—“American Dreams: Selected Works from the Museum's Permanent Collection of American Art,” is an ongoing exhibition that examines artworks created by 18th, 19th and 20th century American artists as ideas or visions of America. This expanded exhibition of the museum's permanent American art collection is presented on both levels of the museum and includes prints, sculpture, photography and painting.

—“Turning Point: The Demise of Modernism and the Rebirth of Meaning in American Art,” will be featured through Jan. 3, 2009. The exhibition focuses on the period from 1960 to 1972 when the tenets of Modernist art collapsed under pressure from newer forms of artistic expression, forming the foundation of contemporary art seen today.

—“Windows on a Hidden World: Japanese Woodblock Prints from the BYU Collection,” will be featured through Jan. 17, 2009. The exhibition presents elegant prints made from intricately carved woodblocks during Japan’s two centuries of self-imposed isolation from 1639 to 1854. The prints include images of entertainers and actors, urban life and serene landscapes from the period when Japan was a mysterious, hidden kingdom.

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. Saturdays. For more information on exhibits and museum programs, visit arts.byu.edu.
