Mélange presents a snapshot of work from the State of Utah Fine Art Collection. It explores the curious, the legendary, the unknown, and the stories behind an eclectic variety of works. When brought together, the range of paintings, prints, sculptures, and mixed media works, and their wide focus of subject — goblins, political figures, artistic strife, the everyday, metaphorical monsters, and curious reproductions — expose the varied and thorough assortment of works included in the 114 years of the Fine Art Collection’s history.

Gold Charm Bracelet, by American artist Jann Haworth was recently selected by the acquisitions committee for purchase into the State Fine Art Collection. The piece is a narrative auto-biographical work covering the time between the artist's mother's marriage and pregnancy (with the artist) to the birth of Ms. Haworth's first child. Each charm references a specific life event. Haworth was born in 1942 and raised in Hollywood, CA. Her works appear in the collections of the Tate, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Walker Art Center, among many others. 

This Frank Nackos sculpture is called Rebirth and the Utah Fine Art Collection acquired it from the 1979 Utah Statewide Annual exhibition. The sculpture consists of geometric aluminum shapes layered on top of one another to create a bisected, circular fan. The sculpture is painted orange on one side, and yellow on the other. As we head into the full swing of Spring, this bright sculpture is reminiscent of  the "rebirth" of the season.
