Many of our buildings are closed to the public and most likely your day-to-day routine has changed. UMA and UA&M are facilitating online conversations every Friday at 2 pm to keep you connected and share ideas about timely topics relevant to the museum community. Please join us!
Please join us for an inspiring presentation from poet, teaching artist, and imagination activist Glenis Redmond on May 7 at 1 p.m., with a post-talk reflection at 2:15 p.m. Ms. Redmond was scheduled to be our keynote speaker for the Mountain West Arts Conference. Thanks to the generosity of the Sam & Diane Stewart Family Foundation, we are able to now offer this as a free online event.
"Our human compassion binds us the one to the other – not in pity or patronizing, but as human beings who have learned how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future." -Nelson Mandela

Does your institution hold unprocessed archival papers, at-risk image collections in need of digitization, or other historical records in need of preservation? The Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board (USHRAB) has funding opportunities and has now extended the deadline in light of recent events.
The optional draft deadline is May 1, 2020. Applications are now due June 4, 2020. The Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board recognizes that this is a trying time for everyone. We know that many of us are now working from home, with limited access to collections and even some looming uncertainty about the future of our institutions. With this in mind, the USHRAB will be extending the deadline for our spring grant round.
We hope that the extra month gives all of us the chance to settle into our new normal, negotiate any collections access necessary to craft your proposals, and gives you the opportunity to put thoughtful consideration to how your potential projects may or may not need to change in light of the challenges presented to us by COVID-19. Please bear in mind that the allotted time frame for projects remains unchanged: work cannot begin earlier than July 15, 2020, and must be complete by June 26, 2021.
Tulsa’s Philbrook Museum of Art has some furry staff members who could use a little TLC and maybe some catnip. Cleo and Perilla are home alone right now like the rest of us. Life in a mansion seems hard when there are so many places to sunbathe and so little time in the day. Whats a furry friend to do?
Let's write them a letter! grab your stationery and pen your thoughts to these feline friends to the arts!
