Artist of the Week: Alexis Rausch

Artist of the Week: Alexis Rausch

By Hannah Keating, Arts Writer

January 14, 2020

  When I first saw “No Story, Thanks” by Alexis Rausch — a painting of an outstretched arm against a baby blue wall, bisected by two thin, yellow, crossed lines — I was struck by its specificity. Every detail, which I later learned where all measured strokes by the artist, fit together lik...

Gilgal Sculpture Garden: Salt Lake’s Hidden Gem

Gilgal Sculpture Garden: Salt Lake’s Hidden Gem

By Weston Wood, Arts Writer

January 14, 2020

Gilgal Sculpture Garden is nestled in a quiet, downtown neighborhood. A local treasure, this garden is unique to Salt Lake City.

January 7, 2020

  Ugly polos, fanny packs, bucket hats. The fashions of 2019 saw the rise of VSCO girls and e-boys, balanced popularity between cheap thrifting and designer sneakers and waves of retro nostalgia brought on in part by TV in the veins of "Stranger Things" or "Friends" — all for the better or wo...

Bildungsroman: The Trauma of Happy Endings

By Alison Myers, Arts Writer

December 28, 2019

  Once — and I say "once" in the liberalist, most distancing, self-deceptive sense, like we don’t still live "once" and that "once" won’t come to bite us in the ass — there was an idealist. A baby faced, bright-eyed, daydreaming — though she would have called it philosophizing — idealist...

December 24, 2019

It is that time of year once again when we reflect on all of the great happenings this past year has brought us. If you’re like me, one of the biggest aspects to reflect on from the past 12 months was the great restaurants we frequented and all of the delicious food we ate. I’ve always been some...

Jayswal’s Favorite Reads of 2019

By Palak Jayswal, Arts Editor

December 14, 2019

  Every year I tell myself I’ll go back to reading — that I’ll rediscover the thrill of cruising through a book so good I'll start at dawn and close the cover at dusk. In 2019, I actually followed through on that resolution. Granted, almost all of my reading happened during summer when I d...
