PaperWest is a new National Works on Paper Juried Biennial Exhibition organized by the Art & Art History Dept at the University of Utah. We are excited to bring to our campus, and the surrounding community, a diverse and exceptional range of artworks from across the nation.
The new foundations program is a dynamic and interdisciplinary first-year of studio practice. While taking eight courses over the year, students learn the introductory skills needed to be a contemporary artist.
