Things To Do In Logan: Friday 02/24/12 Events

BANG! THWACK! PLOP! COMICS: AN INFLUENCE ON CONTEMPORARY ART
This exhibition explores the intersection of comics and art with specific attention on how certain themes and stylistic forms have crossed over from the genre of comics into the world of visual art. The exploding popularity of comics, mostly through animation and graphic novels, shows us the graphic or comic impulse has become a compelling means of artistic communication. This exhibition helps point toward a growing interdisciplinary trend in the arts that allows for a flow of ideas between media and form, creating a liberation of high art. Location: Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art. Open To: USU Students Alumni Faculty Staff and the General Public. Admission Info: The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is open Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, exhibit runs February 4th through March 1st. Admission is free. Website: http://artmuseum.usu.edu/ Contact: Deb Banerjee, (435) 797-8207, deborah.banerjee@usu.edu

FRAGMENTS OF TERROR: DRAWINGS BY JIM STARRETT
With 27 drawings and paintings in this exhibit, the USU community gets a rare look at the work of this contemporary artist. The viewer is taken through a jungle of symbols filled with religious and historical meanings all arranged in meticulous geometric puzzles that are at once clear while also carrying some ambiguous mystery. Location: USU Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art. Open To: USU Students Alumni Faculty Staff and the General Public. Admission Info: The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is open Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, exhibit runs from February 4th through March 1st.

CINDERELLA BY RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN
The Heritage Community Theatre in Perry proudly presents Cinderella! Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. Where: 2505 S HWY 89, Perry, UT. When: 7:30pm on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays February 24 through March 24, with Matinees March 3 & 10 @ 2pm.
