UPCOMING EXHIBITS

The Trunk Show

NOVEMBER 10 - DECEMBER 31

Bricolage is defined as a construction or creation made from a diverse range of available things. In this unique quilt show from the Montana Bricolage Artists, fabric artists were asked to create tree trunks using whatever inspirations, styles, techniques, and materials they wished.

To go along with this exhibit, the Library will be hosting two beginning quilt workshops in association with the Utah Quilt Guild.

This immersive exhibition takes visitors “into the woods” and through Thomas Cole’s studio to discover the ways he, and other artists of his time, pioneered cultural conversations that shaped our national landscape.

 

This exhibition has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
