Sparano+Mooney, St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church

DesignArts Utah '13 features some of the best work being produced by Utah designers in architecture, graphic design, and product design. The juror, Ms. Monica Ponce de Leon says,  “…tension between what is possible and what could be, is at the heart of all the projects selected for this year’s DesignArts Utah Exhibition…. they all have in common the whimsy of their ideas, paired with the delight of their execution and a love for the element of surprise. For this unlikely cohort, design is about transforming the unexpected into the everyday.” Seven projects are featured from: Elpitha Tsoutsounakis - Graphic design; Joshua Stippich - Industrial / product design; Jörg Rügemer - Architecture; Daniel Shirley & Aaron Puglisi  - Industrial / product design; David Wolske / Red Butte Press - Graphic Design; Sparano + Mooney Architecture - Architecture and Robert L. Bliss - Industrial / product design.

Kelly Brooks, Kitchen Clean-up from Movement Studies: Domestic Spaces, 2008

Curated by Laura Allred Hurtado, this exhibition is a collection of work by Utah artists whose work investigates parenthood in a contemporary setting. Says Hurtado, "Some [artists] like Trevor Southey, idealize the tranquility of parenthood almost to the point of pain, examining the simultaneous burden and privilege to hold another soul in one’s arms. While others, like husband and wife Susan and Brad Kruger, make manifest a sense of chaos that ensues when children are young, messy, and moments are dytopic, disorienting and confusing.” The title, Love Hours, is pulled from artist Mike Kelley, whose works of worn stuffed animals sewn together is called, More Love Hours than Can Ever be RepaidMany of the works are mixed-media and include film, drawing, found objects, fabric, books and sculpture. Artists include Leah Moses , Kelly Brooks, Nathan Florence, Trevor Southey, Susan Kruger Barber and Brad Barber.
