America in the 30s: Prints from the Federal Art Project
Stewart Library, Lower and Middle Levels
(February 6 - April 2, 2015)
prints in this exhibit are by artists associated with the California
division of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1935 during the
Great Depression. The project is credited with initiating graphic arts
workshops and commissions for printmakers throughout the nation and
sponsoring the production of some 95,000 prints. This printmaking
initiative made it possible for artists to produce high-quality multiple
versions of their originals. This exhibition of prints by California
artists includes strong images that help the contemporary viewer
understand day-to-day life during the Great Depression in the western
United States. Among the pieces are examples of both lithography and
wood engraving techniques.

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