Exhibition of Rare Maps

A new exhibit at the Utah State Capitol; Rare Maps that Illustrate 500 Years of Exploration in Utah and the Mountain West, shows how mapmakers, tradesman, explorers and others perceived the land that became Utah. The display of 40 rare maps depicts the region from its earliest imaginings by European mapmakers to the modern state boundaries.

An opening reception for Utah Drawn: An Exhibition of Rare Maps will be held in the 4th Floor Gallery of the Utah State Capitol from 9 a.m. to noon on January 27. Additional maps from various institutions and private collectors will be offered as a “show and tell” event in the State Capitol Rotunda between noon and 2 p.m. on January 27. Utah Drawn will be offered through late summer 2017 by the Utah State Historical Society.

“Maps serve many purposes,” said Brad Westwood, Division of State History director. “Maps identify physical geographies and record landmarks and boundaries. They also reflect the imaginations, values, and goals of mapmakers. This is certainly true of these remarkable and rare maps.”

Opening Reception & Awards Ceremony May 4, 6 – 8 p.m.  

My Body My Health Study

Dieting is different than values-based living. Sarah Potts, a doctoral student at Utah State University, is currently recruiting for a dissertation program, a guided self-help program promoting healthy living, especially for folks who have a history of body-shaming and unsuccessful dieting. If you have a history of weight challenges and dieting, this study could be for you! The My Body My Health Study is a doctoral dissertation study, completely non-profit and free for participants. (approved by the Utah State University Internal Review Board). It is testing the efficacy of a flexible guided program promoting valued-living and commitment to behavior change. It is delivered by masters level therapists and might be a helpful program for people interested in committing to diet plans or exercises. Go to for more information!

Krause is curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
