September 19, 2019

  While some New Year’s resolutions bite the dust before the first month of the year ends, a few of mine have managed to stay steadfast as 2019 winds into its last stretch. Among various mental and physical health resolutions, there were a few creative ones I wanted to tackle. One resolutio...

  In Murray, between a bicycle shop and a post office, resides a quirky little arts and crafts shop. A single step inside the shop transports visitors to an almost hoarder-like environment. Yet, for the well-trained artistic eye, this place is a gold mine of creativity. Every crevice of the shop is fi...

  On the fourth floor of the J. Willard Marriott Library, there’s barely any traffic. The quiet atmosphere up there is not only welcome, but required. You see, there’s some important work happening in the solitude — it’s home to the Book Arts Studio. A step inside the glass-encased s...

‘Lover’ is an Homage to Maturity and the End of an Era for Taylor Swift

  Taylor Swift's seventh album “Lover” was released a few days ago on Aug. 23, and it’s arguably her best yet. A sort of love letter to herself, it’s fitting that this is the first album of hers that she has completely owned.  A new side of Swift was shown to the world when she released “Reputation” two years ago, letting both the music industry and the wo...

  Tucked away in the heart of downtown Salt Lake, behind the towering Wells Fargo building, is a hidden gem. Good Grammar is at the end of Gallivan Avenue, not entirely new to the area and definitely not your typical bar. From its name (chosen from a list of over 150 options) to the eclectic at...

July 3, 2019

  When people hear the word “symphony” there are traditionally two different responses: excitement or a deep sense of dread. The Utah Symphony is keen on evoking the first response with their Films in Concert series, in which they perform famous movie scores while the accompanying film pla...

Great Salt Lake and Vicinity Redefines Museum Art

Great Salt Lake and Vicinity Redefines Museum Art

By Palak Jayswal

June 24, 2019

  Anyone who has ever stepped inside the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) on campus can agree that the cavernous G.W. Anderson Family Great Hall is an odd place for a museum. When you consider the various works and exhibits the rest of the area hosts, it’s shocking to see the large, rather empty ...
