Fine Arts and Entertainment Calendar for September 2006

Brigham Young University Fine Arts Calendar

September 2006

At the BYU Museum of Art:

  • A new exhibition of the museum’s permanent collection, “American Dreams: Selected Works from the Museum’s Permanent Collection of American Art,” has replaced “150 Years of American Painting,” which had been on view for 11 years. The exhibition features prints, sculpture, photography and painting. “American Dreams” is divided into three thematic sections: “The Dream of Eden,” “American Aspirations” and “Envisioning America.” The collection is scheduled to be on display until 2011.

  • “Candida Höfer: Architecture of Absence” will be featured from Sept. 15 to Jan. 6, 2007. This is the first North American survey exhibition devoted to this celebrated German artist. Over the last 30 years, Höfer has created meticulously composed images of the interiors of public and institutional spaces. The 50 chromogenic prints in the exhibition embrace the full spectrum of Höfer's illustrious career with an emphasis on her recent work.

  • “Types & Typologies: German Photographers from the Norton Museum of Art” will be on view from Sept. 15 to Jan. 6, 2007. A companion exhibition to “Candida Höfer: Architecture of Absence,” this exhibition gives an overview of the stylistic heritage to which Höfer's work is indebted.

  • “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 reveals how he arrives at successful designs by including, in his words, “just enough.” The approximately 170 works in this exhibition include original drawings, sketchbooks, silk screens and mass-produced posters.

  • “The Intimate Eye: Drawings by Burton Silverman” will be on display through Nov. 25. The exhibit will feature 30 drawings that span Silverman's career of more than four decades. Silverman's work has appeared in The New Yorker and on the covers of Time, Newsweek and New York Magazine. Although intended as a teaching exhibit for drawing students, the technical virtuosity and visual appeal of Silverman's figurative studies will appeal to a large audience. 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, call (801) 422-ARTS.
