EXHIBITS

Religions of the World

Stewart Library, Lower & Middle Levels (February 26 - April 24, 2014)

This 29 piece exhibition displays the illustrations and text from the book, A World of Faith. Peggy Fletcher Stack, religion writer for the Salt Lake Tribune provided the text for the paintings done by Utah artist and educator, Kathleen Peterson.

All text and painting has been reviewed by people of each religious tradition for accuracy and tone. This serves as an introduction to the remarkable diversity of religion to young people. Bigotry begins with ignorance, and many of today’s children know little or nothing about faiths other than their own. We hope these pages will show them similarities and connectedness so that they can be tomorrow’s peacemakers.

CHINA!

Weber's Viking Geologist: The Life of Professor John G. Lind

University Archives Lower Level (Ongoing)

The University Archives is pleased to announce the installation of a new exhibit, "Weber's Viking Geologist: The Life of Professor John G. Lind."  Born in Sweden, Lind was one of the first teachers at Weber Stake Academy in 1896, and over the course of his career saw the school change from a small LDS high school to a bustling state college.  He was the first faculty member with a Ph.D., and was a polymath who taught geology, physical and natural sciences, and Latin.  His Scandinavian heritage led to his nickname, "The Viking," but despite his imposing demeanor, he was a beloved teacher who inspired generations of Weber students.

Photographs by Kevin Mikkelsen
Stewart Library, Middle Level (Ongoing Exhibit)

Kevin Mikkelsen resides in North Ogden, Utah right at the base of the Wasatch Range. “Besides being a beautiful place to live, North Ogden is the perfect jumping off point in which to reach one of 7 National Parks, all within a 5 hour drive time. As time passes, and new things are seen, more miles are traveled, and more mountains climbed, that love progressively deepens and has become an inspiration in his photographic work. Capturing images through today’s digital and film technology has allowed Kevin to express that inspiration in the form of scenic landscapes and wildlife fine art prints.” We are pleased to have the opportunity to show 13 of Kevin’s beautiful images in the library, his complete works may be viewed by going to: PhotographyOutdoors.com
