American sculptor Tony Feher has been changing the way we see the world for the past three decades. With a hyper-awareness of the formal qualities of everyday objects-bottles, tape, plastic bags-Feher turns unconsidered, often-discarded materials into poetic sculptures and elegant installations. For this exhibition, the UMFA has invited Feher to help us re-imagine the architecture of our Great Hall with a brand new site-specific installation. The exhibition is sponsored by Nancy and David Gill, the University of Utah Department of Art and Art History, XMission, and an anonymous donor.

Constructing the Utah Landscape, an interactive companion exhibition to The British Passion for Landscape, exposes the many tools artists use as they approach the genre. Through a variety of hands-on activities, visitors can experiment with artistic techniques on replicas of the Utah scenes on view in the gallery. From shifting the horizon line to using colored filters, visitors can manipulate the key elements of a landscape-assigning the meaning and mood and even the season to an artwork. This exhibition highlights works from the UMFA permanent collection by Maynard Dixon, V. Douglas Snow, and LeConte Stewart, among others. It features a wide range of artistic styles and media, from traditional to abstract, including film and sculpture. By exploring these techniques, visitors will better understand and relate to the artist's process and more fully experience and appreciate the works on view throughout the UMFA. The exhibit will run to Jan. 17, 2016. Visit umfa.utah.edu for information. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.
