Growing West: Exploring Art & Agriculture

Exhibition Website

Growing West is organized by students from the USU Honors Think Tank course and visually recounts the historical narrative that drove Americans and European immigrants to settle the American West as homesteaders and farmers. The exhibition includes a range of artworks from NEHMA’s collection and incorporates both historical and current perspectives on themes such as food production, gender roles, labor issues, irrigation systems and the mechanization of farming practices.
