Art talks at the Kimball Art Center serve as a vehicle for education and discussion surrounding the Kimball's exhibitions. Our monthly art talks are free and open to the public. We encourage you to come out and further the conversation on the visual arts. See below to find out more information about our past and upcoming art talks at the Kimball Art Center, your non-profit community art center.
Art Elevated: How 'Painters of the Wasatch Mountains' Came to Be
Thoms F. Rugh
November 1, 2013
The book, Painter’s of the Wasatch Mountains, inspired the exhibit featured September 7 - November 3, 2013 in the Kimball Art Center’s main gallery. On November 1st, 2013 we were fortunate to have one of the book’s authors, Thomas Rugh, at the Kimball to talk about the publication and his part in its creation. Tom received his BA & MA in Humanities at BYU where he co-edited the book History as a Tool in Critical Interpretation. He studied Art History at the University of Chicago where he received a dissertation fellowship to study early-twentieth-century American watercolor painting.
