God to Go West
Granary Arts / Ephraim
On view through April 30
A new exhibition featuring photographs by Daniel George explores the contemporary landscape of Utah in relation to the state’s religious history.

Pia Camil: Three Works
Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson / Tucson
Saturday, April 10, 1-8 pm MDT
MOCA Tuscon opens a new exhibition by Pia Camil. The three major artworks that make up the show provoke questions about the forces that divide and unite us, playfully yet tenderly suturing unity from fragments. The artist uses everyday materials, excesses, and cast-offs to create opportunities for connection.
