Things To Do In Logan: Thursday 02/09/12 Events

FORGOTTEN PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD
The exhibit, assembled by Special Collections and Archives Photograph Curator Daniel Davis, explores the history of the Union Pacific Railroad through photographs of A. J. Russell. The exhibit presents several of the well-known and idealized scenes of the railroad’s construction (1868-69) as photographed by Russell while under the commission of the Union Pacific Railroad. In addition to the well-known images, the exhibit presents examples of stereo-views taken by Russell and other photographers that offer a more complete and less sanitized version of the railroad’s history. A reception for the exhibit is planned Feb. 15 in conjunction with a lecture by Davis for the Friends of Merrill-Cazier Library. Where: The Merrill-Cazier Library. When: January 23rd through February 17th, All Day. Cost: Free!

Professor Hyde retired from the Department of Art in 2002 after more than 33 years of dedicated service that included 12 years as department head.

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.
