William Shakespeare's body of work represents some of the most influential writings in the English language. His complex characters, lyric phrases, and compelling plots have withstood the test of time and he remains one of the most frequently produced playwrights. Because of the magnitude of Shakespeare's work, this exhibition will highlight selected performances of theater, ballet, music, and opera artists in Utah and their interpretation of Shakespearean works.

McRay Magleby, Jr. graduated from Brigham Young University in 1969 with a bachelor's degree in art. He then served as creative designer of BYU Publications & Graphics (now called BYU Graphics) until 1996. In 1987 BYU awarded him with the Honorary Alumni Award. Along with teaching at both the University of Utah and BYU, Magleby was commissioned for several historic events. He created the first Cultural Olympiad poster for the 2002 Olympics and he also designed a carving for the Governor's Mansion for the 100th anniversary of Utah. He also designed the Wave of Peace poster, commemorating the 40th anniversary of the bombing on Hiroshima.
In 2008 McRay (Mac) retired from his professorship at the U of U. Since 1987 Magleby has been teaching students how to be creative. He told them, "Being creative is risky; however, where the risks are great, the rewards are greater."
In April and May 2012 Magleby's art was featured in the Covey Center for the Arts exhibit Seasons in the Rockies: Landscapes by McRay Magleby.
