Strut is an exhibition of recent work from faculty in the University of Utah's College of Fine Arts and College of Architecture + Planning, representing theatre, studio art, architecture, film, and music.
The exhibitors were asked to contemplate how their work embraces and reflects the theme, Strut. Pride, posturing, and impressions run through many of the pieces; their subjects exude a sense of self-confidence and swagger, and they command your attention. Others create forms that withstand naturally destructive phenomena: weather, decay, and entropy. For these artists and designers, Strut also refers to structural elements that come alive and survive in a constant state of tension.
The exhibit features the works of:
- Anne Mooney (Architecture)
- Brenda Van der Wiel (Theatre)
- Christopher Lee (Film & Media Arts)
- Erin Carraher (Architecture)
- Lisa Chaufty (Music)
- Maureen O’Hara Ure (Art & Art History: Studio Arts)
- Miguel Chuaqui (Music)
- Prescott Muir (Architecture)
Strut exhibition runs October 21, 2014-January 5, 2015. Exhibits on view on Levels 1 and 2 of the J. Willard Marriott Library.
