Gallery Talk and Reception with Jon Wassom

It's a Gallery Talk & Reception at the Brigham City Museum of Art & History! Join us on Saturday, October 26 from 2:00 to4:00 PM as we welcome Jon Wassom, a featured artist in our current exhibition "Contemporary Illustration".

Jon Wassom's art reflects his love affair with art and texture. His paintings are shallow color sculptures full of intuitive mark making. Each piece represents his abstract response to his perception of the natural world, the man-made world, and the cosmos.

Night at the Museum and Fashion Show

Come explore the museum at night! For a special treat, we'll be open from 6-8pm on Monday, June 3rd. Bring a date or bring the family and enjoy this unique opportunity to come to the museum.
Few of the photos of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad include many women, and sometimes it's hard to envision what people of the past wore.
The evening will include fashion show with costumes from the 18th century through the early 20th century.
The event is free and held in conjunction with "The Spike at 150: Myths and Realities."

19th Century Dance Lesson and Demonstration

Have you always wanted to dance like it's 1869? Now's your chance! Old Glory Vintage Dancers will be here to teach you how to dance, and will give demonstrations. Dress up if you like, and join us at this free event held in conjunction with "The Spike at 150: Myths and Realities."
The exhibition and related programming have been made possible by the Utah Department of Heritage and Arts, Spike 150, and the Box Elder County Tourism Tax Advisory Board Golden Spike Sesquicentennial Grant.

Field Trip: Sun Tunnels

Nancy Holt’s Sun Tunnels, roughly 147 miles west of Brigham City, was the inspiration for Salt Lake artist Kelly O’Neill in creating rend/er, which is on view at the Brigham City Museum of Art & History through June 12, 2018. Holt’s seminal piece of land art immerses visitors in the encircling horizon of the Great Basin Desert to contemplate place, presence, and time.
