A new exhibit on display in the Merrill-Cazier Library until July 13th features artists trying to understand the world through the lens of their creativity.

Presented by the Utah Arts & Museums’ Traveling Exhibition program, “What Is It You Plan To Do …” includes work created by artists who are exploring their world in various ways but all with the objective of understanding it better. The impetus for the exhibit came from in 1992 Mary Oliver poem “The Summer Day,” which ends with the acclaimed lines, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

This exhibit seeks to explore that question.
