New Exhibitions Opening at BDAC: Ars Moriendi, The Sinners We Are, Art + Science, Nocturne

September 28 @ 6:00 PM - November 2 @ 6:00 PM

Free

Bountiful Davis Art Center is thrilled to announce our upcoming exhibitions and events examining death and science. Ars Moriendi explores the concept of death from the viewpoints of sixteen visual artists from diverse backgrounds. Four distinguished authors including Utah’s 2017 Poet Laureate will read death-centric poetry and writing during the reception for the exhibit from 6-8 PM Sept. 28th.

Opening the same evening is exhibit by artist Alexis Rausch: The Sinners We Are. The works in this exhibit reflect upon how victims and perpetrators are represented and paid tribute to after death or incarceration.

The theme of BDAC’s Annual Plein Air Competition this year is NIGHT. Paintings done outdoors after sunset by participants in the juried competition will be on view until Nov. 2 with $1500 awarded to the three winners.

Rounding out the exhibits opening Sept. 28 is SCIENCE+ART. In contrast to the often cold and intimidating presentation of science, four artists use their warm, sweet aesthetic to demonstrate the intimate relationship between art and science.

In conjunction with these exhibits, a smorgasbord of death and science-related events packs BDAC’s October calendar. Guests can participate in a free public discussion about death literature with author Paisley Rekdal (Imaginary Vessels), moderated by art historian Micah Christensen. Families will enjoy building remote-control drawing robots at free Family Art Night: littleBits™ Droid Drawings. Other workshops include learning how to pin insects and make your own Frida Khalo doll.
