Bike to Movie Night

The Environmental & Sustainability Studies leadership committee presents Bike to Movie Night, featuring the movie “Jumbo Wild” on Sept. 13 from 7-10 p.m. at The Pioneer Garden (located east of the Pioneer Theatre on campus). “Jumbo Wild” is a movie about the battle between protecting British Columbia’s wilderness and the backcountry experience in the Jumbo Valley. Come hang out with other bikers and enjoy light refreshments and a free bike valet. Light bike repairs will be provided by U Bike Shop mechanics (just in case) so you and your wheels are good to go after the show. Guests are welcome to bring a blanket and a small chair for comfort to enjoy the movie.

Open Sky

The Open Sky Taft-Nicholson Painting Residency Exhibition takes place from Sept. 6 – 22 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Alvin Gittins Gallery in the Art Building at the University of Utah. Opening night is on Sept. 5 at 6 p.m. and is free to attend. This exhibit features the finished works of 12 students who completed a painting residency under the guidance of professor Kim Martinez at the Taft-Nicholson Center in Centennial Valley, Montana.

More information about these students’ experience is available on Instagram under the hashtag #uofuopenskypainters.
