Ummah Exhibition Opening Reception and Talk

Ummah Exhibition Opening Reception and Talk will be on the 4th, the reception begins at 6pm and the talk is at 7.  FREE Emerald Project co-founders Satin Tashnizi and Nora Abu-Dan will discuss the origin and mission of their non-profit, The Emerald Project, and how Ummah*, a UMFA ACME Lab exhibition, came together. Created in collaboration with The Emerald Project, Ummah is an exciting, community-focused exhibition that explores the primary tenets of Islam and celebrates the Muslim community in Utah. Connect with the dynamic team that brought Ummah* to fruition at a panel discussion in the Auditorium and follow their conversation into the gallery. *Ummah is the Arabic word for community, referring to a collective of Islamic peoples transcending the boundaries of nations. It can also mean a community with any common history.

Arrive early for refreshments in the UMFA café and to explore Ummah in the ACME Lab.

Behind the Zion Curtain Cabaret

SLC's grittiest monthly underground punk rock cabaret, every first Humpday.  Our monthly show is full of the "others" of the performance world, the people who want to say something with our art, a safe and encouraging space to be enraged, pick at censorship, and get to the nitty gritty of why we do these arts. Burlesque, drag, acrobatics, dance, aerials, poetry, weirdos, and more. Each month is different, and we swing wildly between heavy topics and light catharsis, with themes intended to inspire and get people thinking.

RSVP required, use the link in our Instagram bio @BehindTheZionCurtain or on the Facebook event via our page facebook.me/behindthezioncurtaincabaret Cover is $10 cash at the door plus tips for the performers.

William R. and Erlyn J. Gould Distinguished Lecture on Technology and the Quality of Life

In the beginning, power companies were absolute monopolies. The wires coming into our houses only came from one company. They made the electricity, and they set the prices. They paid thousands of engineers to design and build magnificent, multi-billion dollar nuclear and coal plants. All that has changed. Power companies have far less control. The new power companies are increasingly you and me. It’s not just solar panels on our roofs. Factories and power-hungry data centers now build their own, smaller power plants “behind the meter” and only use the traditional grid for backup. Still, skeptics ask, “Is the Green New Deal even possible?” Others wonder, “Is it perhaps inevitable?” One thing is certain. Where you get your electricity in the future will not be where you got it from in the past. Mr. Bill Gould received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering from BYU in 1972. He is a registered Mechanical and/or Nuclear engineer in several states. His career was spent in managing the design, construction, and operation of some of the largest and most complex power plants in the world. These power plants were fueled by coal, fuel oil, natural gas, nuclear, or most recently, by wind and by solar power. Bill Gould has been a frequent speaker at technical conferences and a consultant for the U.S. Department of Energy and other industry groups. His most recent position was the Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of the Solar Reserve company, which built high temperature solar thermal power plants like the 110-megawatt Crescent Dunes station in Nevada, which has enough energy storage so that it can continue delivering electricity at full power all through the night. lib.utah.edu
