Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People

Nuchu-Voices-of-the-Ute-People,-Native-American,-Museum-of-Peoples-and-Culture,-BYUThe BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures is pleased to announce their newest exhibit, “Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People.”

The exhibit celebrates the rich heritage of the Ute throughout northeastern Utah, including Utah Valley. In the exhibit, their voices tell the story of their vibrant history and life.

The exhibit contains items collected around the Vernal area of Utah during the 1930s and 1940s. The text and labels for this exhibit are taken from interviews with Ute tribal members over the past 15 years, providing an opportunity to hear how the Ute view the items and their own heritage. Helping to fulfil the MPC’s mission to train future museum professionals, “students have combed through hours of interviews and texts, collaborated on the design of the galleries, and built the displays,” Kari Nelson, curator of education, said.

Wide-Open Spaces Art Exhibit

ENDLESS HORIZONS

Vast, flat, almost empty expanses of desert plains and highland plateaus are distinctive elements of the Southwestern landscape. Many regional artists attempted to portray this quality of almost infinite space by emphasizing unbroken horizontal lines across their compositions. While more traditional landscape paintings often include clumps of trees on both sides of the canvas to frame the view and create a sense of completeness, the paintings in this gallery dispense with those framing elements to create a sense of incompleteness—a feeling that the scene extends far beyond the frame.

TOWERING MOUNTAINS

Have you ever taken a snapshot of an awe-inspiring mountain only to find it looking small and insignificant in your picture? How is it possible to capture its size and grandeur in a small image? Paintings in this gallery show how some Southwestern artists met this challenge by crowding the canvas and cropping the view. In some cases, a mountain peak almost grazes the top of the painting, and in others the sheer face of a cliff fills most of the background, leaving only a small patch of sky. These approaches imply that the subject is just too large to fit inside the frame.
