Ongoing throughout March— Throughout the month of March, the Myra Powell gallery in Union Station will house the exhibition “Fiber [Work]”, as curated by our Public Programs Coordinator to showcase a different kind of “work” done by women and Native peoples of Weber County. Those interested in contributing should contact Danielle Susi.
March 7—In conjunction with the “Fiber [Work]” exhibition, a fiber art demonstration will be given by Judy Elsley, who will show and talk about the various stages of fabric dying and other cloth-making techniques. Both the exhibition and demonstration aim to examine HOW we work and offer an alternative to other kinds of “traditional” labor while simultaneously serving as an example of traditional “home-work”. Noon-1:30pm, Grand Lobby
March 17—Ogden After Dark Lectures; Val Holley will present his lecture entitled “The Way We Burped: Bootlegging and Other 25th Street Career Paths.” Sarah Singh will present “Sisters of Scarlet: Prostitution in Ogden.” 7pm, Browning Theater
March 18—Walking Tour of 25th St given by Val Holley; 1-2pm
2/25, 3/7, 3/17–Throughout the duration of “The Way We Worked” at Union Station, Utah Public Radio will record fifteen oral histories from visitors and community members over the course of three days. In this program, we aim to document otherwise undocumented tales of Weber County’s labor history. Contact Danielle Susi if you have a story you would like to share.
