Colors are loaded with meaning across time, culture, and place. Psychologists assign colors to different personalities; the exposure to different colors can invoke different moods. However, one color occupies more space in the spectrum visible to the human eye; the color green. Green is all around us literally and symbolically. The selections in this exhibit are from the State Fine Art Collection and feature the color green in a significant way.

This autumn scene of northern, suburban Utah was painted by Richard Van Wagoner in the mid-1980s. When asked to comment on his work, which at this time often included scenes of streets and freeways, Van Wagoner said, "The highway environment is of interest to me because it is perhaps the greatest manifestation of man's interests and activities... The fact that man is behind it all, struggling to make it work seems important."
