"Poetic Kinetics: Installation Art by Dennis Smith and Andrew Smith" is at the BYU Museum of Art. Consisting of three-dimensional works by popular artist Dennis Smith and son Andrew Smith, this carnival-like atmosphere will interconnect with kinetic elements. Dennis and Andrew believe that whimsy and play are important features of a child's education, thus their desire is to have their works transport the viewer to revisit his or her childhood.

"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 reenactment 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. The exhibit is free and the public is welcome to attend. For museum hours visit http://cfac.byu.edu/moa.

"Outside Inside: Fragments in Place" will be available at the Museum of Art. The seven Australian artists participating in this exhibition are Josie Cavallaro, Jacqueline Clayton, Bonita Ely, Julie Gough, Anne Graham, Noelene Lucas and Regina Walters. These artists, whose works are widely regarded, were brought to Utah in July 2002 to research various cultural, geographical, political and historical dimensions that underpin the society of the Wasatch Front. From their research analysis, various issues will become the foundation of each artist's proposal for a site-specific installation work at the BYU Museum of Art. Preliminary information indicates that the subject of these works will include the character of thrift and industry in this society, genealogy/family history and its procedures and values, the temporary structures for living made in the early settlement of the valley and the way societies were formed, and this society's philosophies and practices of reaching out beyond itself in order to sustain others. The exhibit is free and the public is welcome to attend. For museum hours visit http://cfac.byu.edu/moa.
