Krishna promised followers that through <em>bhakti</em> (devotion) to him, one could gain <em>moksha</em> (salvation). The exhibition will be presented in the Museum’s Emma Eccles Jones Education Gallery.</p> <p class="p3"><strong><em>salt 9: Jillian Mayer, </em></strong><strong style="">closes Aug. 17</strong></p> <p class="p3"><span style="">What does it mean to upload your soul to the Internet or to leave a timeless video message for your unborn grandchild? Cloaked with humor, fast editing, and pop soundtracks, Mayer's videos are designed for mass appeal but ask big questions about human connection and manufactured realities. Her work lives in, and is activated by, viewer participation. She investigates the (im)possibility of authenticity and the multiplicity of authorship by co-opting the visual language and tools of Google, online chat boards, and viral videos. Mayer uses photography, video, drawing, installation, and performance to tease out the pathways and pitfalls of postmodern identity formation while considering our increasing integration with the web and questioning the distinction between reality and the virtual world.</span></p> <p class="p3"><strong style="">Lawrence Weiner: </strong><strong style=""><em>BENT TO A STRAIGHT AND NARROW AT A POINT OF PASSAGE, </em></strong><strong style="">closes Aug. 24</strong></p> <p class="p3">A fascinating work of language sculpture by groundbreaking contemporary artist Lawrence Weiner is now on view in the UMFA G. W. Anderson Family Great Hall. Purchased by the Museum in 2011 with funds from the Phyllis Cannon Wattis Endowment for 20th Century Art,<em>BENT TO A STRAIGHT AND NARROW AT A POINT OF PASSAGE</em> (1976) is an important addition to the UMFA's permanent collection of contemporary art and represents a canonical moment in art history.</p> <p class="p3"><strong style=""><em>Moksha: Photography by Fazal Sheikh, </em></strong><strong style="">on view through Nov. 30</strong></p> <p class="p4"><em>Moksha: Photography by Fazal Sheikh</em> weaves together the artist-activist’s portraits and the stories of a community of widows in the Hindu pilgrimage site of Vrindavan. A marginalized segment of Hindu society since ancient times, widows, many of them dispossessed of home and family, have few places of sanctuary. In Vrindavan, a city holy to the Hindu god Krishna, these women chant and pray every day in the hopes of obtaining <em>moksha</em>, release from the constant cycle of death and rebirth. The exhibition, comprising forty photographs by Sheikh, is on loan from the Princeton Museum of Art.</p> <p class="p4"><strong style=""><em>Creation and Erasure: Art of the Bingham Canyon Mine, </em></strong><strong style="">on view through Sept. 28</strong></p> <p class="p3">Northern Utah’s Bingham Canyon Mine, the largest man-made excavation on earth, has been a source of fascination and inspiration for artists around the country since the mine’s earliest days. Spanning 1873 to the present, this exhibition presents paintings, drawings, prints and photographs that examine the mine from a variety of perspectives, tracing its physical development as well as its effects on the local economy, culture, environment, and people. Featured artists include Jonas Lie, William Rittase, Andreas Feininger, Jean Arnold, Edward Burtynsky and the Center for Land Use Interpretation, among others. The exhibition also includes photographs of the mine after the massive landslide of spring 2013, the effects of which continue to impact the mine’s operations.</p> <p class="p3">Admission is $9 for adults, $7 for kids 6 and under and free for members. For more information, visit <a href=""></a>. </p>Salt Lake magazineWed, 30 Jul 2014 15:23:25 +0000 The HiveGiveaway: August Spa Night at Grand America<p class="p1"><img alt="" height="181" src="/site_media/uploads/July2014/spa.jpg" width="490"></p> <p class="p1">Although the long, lazy days of summer will soon end, that doesn’t mean your R&amp;R has to follow suit.</p> <p class="p1">There’s still time to be pampered and primped to your hearts content. </p> <p class="p2"><a href="">The Spa</a> at <a href="">The Grand America</a> will host an August Spa Night with Moroccan Oil on Thursday, Aug. 14, from 6–8 p.m. </p> <p class="p2">The night includes scalp treatments with Moroccan Oil; delicious cuisine and beverages; full access to the spa amenities and pools for the whole day; a range of gifts, goodies, and samples; $25 of retail credit for the night and entry to The Spa’s year-end Grand Getaway package.</p> <p class="p2">Purchase tickets for $50 per person <a href="">here.</a> Or win one from us:</p> <p class="p2"><img alt="" height="331" src="/site_media/uploads/July2014/moroccan_oil.jpg" width="300"></p> <p class="p2"><strong>CONTEST</strong></p> <p class="p2">We’re giving away one ticket to the Spa Night.

And while I wouldn't say Santana was as good as I remember, there was little mistaking the potency of the band's live show even all these years later.</p> <p>Carlos Santana used his still-impressive guitar to lead a 10-piece band of percussionists, horns and singers through more than two hours of lengthy instrumental excursions and dives into some of the classic American rock songbook.</p> <p>I was pleasantly surprised at Santana and Co.'s early run through some older classics, from "Everybody's Everything" from the band's 1971 self-titled release to a one-two punch of "Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen" and "Oye Como Va." Even if the man's exaggerated guitar workouts aren't your thing, there's no denying the ability of "Oye Como Va" to get a crowd moving. And move it did, the audience staying on its feet throughout the early burst of favorites.</p> <p>"Maria Maria" from Santana's 1999 mega-comeback album <em>Supernatural</em> proved just as winning for the crowd, and "Foo Foo" gave co-vocalists Tony Lindsay and Andy Vargas the chance to engage the crowd, beckoning the audience to wave its hands, or jump to the beat throughout the song. Both singers were competent at best, lacking the personality of the band's namesake as they delivered a slew of hits they didn't have a hand in recording. That's a thankless task--but upon watching and listening to them early in the show, I jotted in my notes: "No one here paid for the singers."</p> <p>They did, though, pay for Carlos Santana to blow their minds, and he did his best to deliver. "Corazon Espinado" (with a dash of "I Like It Like That") was a highlight, leading into a lengthy jam in which Carlos Santana allowed his massive band to take turns with solos before he led the back into what a called "a new song"--a cover of "Tequila." The follow-up jam touched on the  Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," a song he'd teased early in the set, before the band launched into a full-bodied "Evil Ways" (complete with an aside into War's "Spill the Wine").</p> <p>Carlos Santana let the music do the talking for the most part all night long, before encouraging the crowd to "turn off the TV because most of the time it's just stupid shit. Not very elevating, or inspiring."</p> <p>A few seconds of the crowd chanting "light" and "love" led the bandleader into his monster late-career hit "Smooth" and oldie "Soul Sacrifice" in an encore featuring band introductions and brief excursions into songs like Bob Marley's "Stir It Up" and The Police's "Roxanne."</p> <p>The two-plus-hours flew by, and the long day of rain was well gone by the time Santana took the stage at 7:30 p.m. By 10, the crowd was spent and satisfied by nearly two-dozen songs of remarkable playing by Santana and his band. If lengthy jams and dance-friendly songs aren't your thing, the Santana show was probably not what you were looking for Tuesday night.</p> <p>For most on hand, though, it was exactly what they were hoping for when they put down money for the most expensive Red Butte show of the summer--a high-energy mix of hits and experimental excursions led by a true legend who still can play like few others.</p>Dan NailenWed, 30 Jul 2014 12:00:00 +0000 Nailen's Lounge ActIn The HiveGet Your Face in SLmag: Park City Kimball Arts Festival<p class="p1"><iframe height="276" src="" width="490"></iframe></p> <p class="p1">While you’re strolling Main Street at this weekend's <a href="">Park City Kimball Arts Festival,</a> look for our photographer Lakota Gambill, who will be taking photos of festival-goers and vendors for our website and magazine.</p> <p class="p1">This year’s festival runs Aug. 1–3.

Mostly singletrack. Part of the fun is the drive through Heber City and the deciduous forest. It's beautiful in the summer, but we also recommend going this fall.</p> <p><strong>Who you'll see:</strong> Lots of moms, dads and children. Happy time to traverse the boardwalks and trails that line the seemingly endless aspen forest's edge in the shadow of Mount Timpanogos.</p> <p><strong>How to get there:</strong> Highway 189 southeast from Heber City toward Provo. Right on Highway 92 and follow that into the Cascade Springs parking lot.</p> <p><strong>Notable: </strong>This is hiking country. Perhaps start with this and work your way through the Uintas this summer.</p> <p><strong>Eco-conscious</strong>: Plenty of trash cans in the parking lot, but plenty of trash (dirty diapers, yech) lines the edge of the forest.

Looks pretty good, right? For Adam Terry, a local banker-turned-business-owner, imagining was not enough––he successfully turned his dream into reality. </p> <p class="p1"><span>After losing his job at a bank, Terry decided there was no better time to finally start working in food. He started selling waffles out of a food truck in Utah County. His wife backed him up by doing promotional work, and together they built </span><a href="">Waffle Love</a><span> into a beloved local business with a fleet of trucks and store in Provo.</span></p> <p class="p2">Waffle Love offers liege waffles with a range of toppings, including fresh fruit, cream whipped in the truck, biscoff spread, nutella, ice cream and dulce de leche. “We’re always changing it up,” Terry says. During cherry season, the truck offers fresh local cherries as toppings. </p> <p class="p2"><img alt="" height="490" src="/site_media/uploads/July2014/waffle_love_3.jpg" width="490"></p> <p class="p2">“I will never shortchange my recipe or change the ingredients to something cheaper,” Terry says. “We pay a premium for all the ingredients we buy and the waffles taste amazing.” The pearl sugar is imported from Belgium, and they use high-quality butter and wheat milled in Utah.</p> <p class="p2">What makes Waffle Love truly unique is its relationship with customers.</p> <p class="p2">“The community really came out and supported me that first year,” Terry says. “The first day, I only sold 13 waffles.” Subtract that from the 100 waffles per day he needed to sell, and it wasn’t looking good. Luckily, “of those 13 people that came by the first day, some were local celebrities,” Terry says. <a href=""><span>Mindy Gledhill,</span></a><span> local singer/songwriter, Instagrammed her experience that first day, and word spread. </span></p> <p class="p2"><span>Three months later, Waffle Love was all the rage. “I started to get really big lines,” Terry says. “I would go park in the middle of a dirt field on a Friday night, and tons of people would come and line up. I feel like people have just been so awesome in supporting us.”</span></p> <p class="p2"><img alt="" height="490" src="/site_media/uploads/July2014/waffle_love_4.jpg" width="326"></p> <p class="p2">Persevering with only a $5,000 loan from his grandma-in-law, a junkyard-worthy old truck, and a dream, Terry proves it all comes down to determination. <span>“You start where you are with what you have, and go from there. Nothing worth doing is easy,” Terry says. "Any entrepreneur is going to find obstacles, but it will be so much more satisfying if you’re willing to do whatever it takes.”</span></p> <p class="p1"><img alt="" height="490" src="/site_media/uploads/July2014/waffle_love_2.jpg" width="490"></p> <p class="p2">Waffle Love’s food trucks are located in Salt Lake County, Utah County, St. George and Maricopa County, Arizona, with a store location at 1796 N. 950 West, Provo.
