While no one could have accurately predicted the many nuances and historic moments that would occur in 2020, it didn’t stop previous generations from trying. In his piece “Seeing 2020,” Assistant Professor of Graphic Design Gareth Fry stitches together a calendar composed of futurist predictions made during the twentieth century. From square tomatoes to the elimination of professional surgeons, “Seeing 2020” provides a space to ponder where humankind has been in the past, how we arrived at this point in the present, and all of the possibilities that may have occurred in between.

Amber Tutwiler, a lecturer at Utah Valley University, uses her oil painting, sculpture, and new media skills to create spaces that are both simultaneously real and imagined. Tutwiler’s paintings explore the concept of hyperreality by transforming actual places into indistinguishable imagery through digital manipulation.

Associate Professor John Rees captures compelling imagery through his inquisitive photography. By viewing and recontextualizing landscapes through man-made frames, Rees tests the boundaries between humanity’s influence and Earth’s persistent natural environments.

The UVU Woodbury Art Museum has developed innovative solutions to continue sharing art despite social distancing limitations. The Create Club provides new tutorials for at-home art projects every Friday. From stained glass to soap sculptures, these step-by-step guides are designed for artists of every age and skill level. Beyond the screen, museum staffers have been hard at work preparing for the debut of the UVU Museum of Art at Lakemount Manor. Lakemount Manor was donated to Utah Valley University by the sons of beloved philanthropist and community activist Melanie Bastian.
