Collecting on the Edge Part II

Arts/Entertainment

Modern and contemporary art created in the American West, manifesting an independent spirit and embodying unique ideas, has been largely written out of the mainstream narrative of art history or placed in unhelpful contexts. "Collecting on the Edge," featuring work by 172 artists from the collection of the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University in Logan Utah, aims to correct that situation. Texts accompanying each artwork, by eighty-one critics, art historians, curators, gallerists, artists, and collectors, provide illuminating insights into the works and their creators.

In an introductory essay art critic Michael Duncan exposes the provincialism and regionalist thinking that has dictated mainstream views of modernism: “Many of the nation’s most daring, innovative, and iconoclastic works have been ignored…simply because they were made on the wrong side of the Mississippi.”

Size Matters

Arts/Entertainment

A one-man show performed by the writer himself, Size Matters tackles bullies and body issues using comedic honesty that we don’t usually hear from men. Ray is on a self-imposed crash diet two months before his wedding. While his fiancée loves him regardless, Ray is reminded of his continued girth by his comedy career, and blindsided by a visit from his biggest fan; his overweight ten-year-old nephew.

A Raisin in the Sun

Arts/Entertainment

The New York Times calls this “the play that changed American theater forever.” In this play, Hansberry - a pioneering, female, African-American playwright - covers issues of racism, discrimination, generational clashes, civil rights, and the women’s movement through the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
