New mural for Heritage Center

student_mural_vert_600The newest student-made mural at the Peterson Heritage Center will be dedicated Saturday, Feb. 2, by the Department of Art & Art History. The mural, titled Nexus, is a 25-by-30-foot acrylic painting in the dining room with imagery of nature, humans, and the environment. “The concept behind the site-specific mural is a fusion of art, science, and history,” says student Cayley Rasmussen. “It is about the elemental breakdown of everything that surrounds humans—from our food, to our environment, to the history beneath our feet. When all of these things are broken down into their compositional elements, the results are astoundingly similar.” For more information, contact Kim Martinez  (801-581-6513). Read more here.
