Events

Opening Reception - Spy Hop's "Safe and Sound" and Scott Horsley's "I Learned it from Watching You"

Join UMOCA for the opening of two new exhibitions: Spy Hop’s "Safe and Sound" and Scott Horsley’s "I Learned it from Watching You." "Safe and Sound" features short audio pieces that range from spoken word to ambient sounds created by teens from around the globe expressing what safety sounds like to them. Artist-In-Residence Scott Horsley’s "I Learned it from Watching You" discusses the parallels between nourishment and destruction, the ways in which everything we can create can be used for better or for worse.

The Kingston Trio

The Kingston Trio will perform at the Egyptian Theatre June 8th-10th. They are one of the few groups that has survived the many changes in the world of music. In 1957, The Kingston Trio brought the rich tradition of American folk music into the mainstream. Now, 60 years after “Tom Dooley” charted Number One, the Trio is still bringing great memories to the stage. They have remained consistent in their sound, which probably explains their resurgence in popularity over the last few years. Special Thursday pricing is offered. TICKETS: THURSDAY $29 / $35 / $45 FRIDAY & SATURDAY $35 / $43 / $55 TICKETS SOLD AT THE DOOR 30 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE SHOW ARE $5 MORE TICKET SALES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

Help save our precious foothills from the encroaching noxious weeds, learn about the ecology, classification, and diversity of plants and wildlife in our ecosystem and meet great people.  Participation in events with Urban Habitat is voluntary for improving plant habitat in the urban-wildland interface in the foothills of Salt Lake Valley. For participation on the weed plucks we require gloves, closed-toed footwear, long pants, a University release form, and water. We also encourage participants to bring long-sleeved shirts, shade hats, sunscreen, and a snack.

Meeting destination for the group will be determined prior to each event as notified through the groups distribution email list the Urban Habitat Website and our Facebook Page.
