It also follows mining startup The Metals Company, as it pursues funding, public favor, and permission from the International Seabed Authority to mine wide swaths of the Pacific Ocean floor.

  • Jan. 31: Deadline for A Taste of Art: "A Taste of Art is an art show and sale to benefit the Red Acre Center for Food and Agriculture. Located in Cedar City, Utah,  Red Acre Center for Food and Agriculture is a 501c3 whose mission is to promote and advocate for the exposure, education, and success of urban and rural farms and ranches throughout Utah. We are seeking artists in all media to represent farming and farm life through their art. Art must be farm related but can include people, animals, landscapes, crops, farm events, etc. Artists will be invited to work en plein air at selected farms throughout Utah. Artists are not required to paint en plein air and may create from their own farm inspiration as they find it throughout Utah. Organizers of the event will select the art to be included in the show. Participating artists are asked to donate a work of art in support of Red Acre Center for Food and Agriculture. Artists will receive 50% of the sale amount with 50% going to the Red Acre Center for Food and Agriculture. A Taste of Art events will also feature food and drink purveyors from Utah to include farmers, chefs, wineries and distillers — all of whom will donate certain portions of their offerings toward the event. A Taste of Art preview will be held March 30, 2023 at Central Ninth Market, with a finale March 10, 2024 at Snuck Farm, in Pleasant Grove, UT. To learn more and apply, click here
