Spend your Fall Break enjoying great art in the area

 

Hey, kids! It’s Fall Break! That means you don’t have to come to class for a couple days. It also means, you have some extra time to take advantage of some of the great art in the area.

 

A part of making art is consuming art. It’s important to see what other people are doing, to determine if you like it, want to copy it, hate it, want to stay away from the way they did it, or whatever! But living in a vacuum of your own creation is the surest way to delay progress.

 

The good news is that even if you’re sticking around town during Fall Break, there are lots of places to experience great art right here in Utah County.

 

Velour

The Moth and the Flame have a two-night engagement at the Velour. The band started locally and have gone on to tour the world, using their musical skills commercially and lucratively. Check them out for a night of poppy, dance-ready music.

Covey Center - Angel Street

One of the longest-running non-musicals in the world, the show is about a bitter husband who tries to gaslight his wife into insanity. With the help of a kind inspector, she gets to the bottom of what has truly been happening to her.

Evermore

The immersive park features a couple of actors you might recognize from UVU! It’s a mystery game, created to keep you in the story and on the trail to solve Evermore’s various puzzles. The set and costume design is impressive, and the whole thing is overall a great feat of interactive theater.
