Earl Denet comes from the village of Sichomovi, First Mesa on the Hopi Reservation of Northern Arizona. At the urging of his father, Earl began making kachina dolls in the "old style" that utilizes materials such as corn husks, leather, sheepskin and yarn. Kachina dolls are made from the roots of cottonwood trees and are traditionally given to Hopi girls during ceremonies. These dolls are representations of the immortal spirits that govern all aspects of nature. This Koyemsi, or Mudhead Kachina, is a clown who participates in most Hopi ceremonies. They drum, dance, play games, give prizes and announce events to the audience. When crafting a kachina doll Earl paints their eyes last as a way of symbolically waking his doll. Come see his kachinas on display today!

During the Tibetan uprising of 1959, Karma Sok-Choekore's family fled their home in Tibet for refugee camps in Nepal. It was in these refugee camps that Karma learned to make traditional Tibetan pile carpets that incorporate Tibetan symbols with designs from both Chinese and Indian Buddhism. The rugs are created by knotting single strands of wool onto the weft of the loom and then building the knots row upon row until the carpet has reached the desired fullness. In 1992 Karma immigrated to Utah where he continues to teach and demonstrate weaving. Come see one of his Tibetan wall hangings on display today!

Cattle are a sign of wealth in South Sudanese culture. "During adolescence, a son is given a bull calf to raise, for which he alone is responsible. This includes composing a song to his animal—the song that will soothe the bull throughout its lifetime, the song that the man will use to call his bull to follow him home after grazing." Due to their importance, children learn to care for cattle by making molded figurines.

To honor this tradition and help educate the next generation of Sudanese children, Dominic Raimondo makes clay cattle in the traditional way, molding the figures by hand. When the clay has dried, he puts the figure in a pile of sawdust in a bucket, lights a fire in the bucket and covers it to trap the heat. When the clay bulls reach the desired hardness, they are glazed. Come see Dominic's clay figurines on display today!

To learn more about Dominic's background as a Sudanese Lost Boy and his efforts to support Suandese refugees, visit his website at drfoundation.wordpress.com

Moani Revoir was first introduced to quilting by a neighbor shortly after she moved to Utah. As her passion for quilting grew, she read books, attended classes and became an expert in Hawaiian quilting. Moani is know for creating the Hawaiian traditional whole cloth quilts, or kapa, made from just two pieces of fabric, one cut into a design and appliqued on the other, joined with evenly spaced stitching that follows the contour of the pattern. This quilt is an example of the Hawaiian tradition of using patterns inspired by natural elements. Come see her quilt on display today!

Speaking of grants... don't miss the deadline to submit this Friday!

Our grants are closing this Friday! As we hope you know by now, the Legislature allocated an additional $2 million in one-time funding for our agency to grant to arts organizations and museums. Applications are due Friday, March 22 by 5 p.m.

"For the first time in many years, the majority of legislators didn’t focus on whether they should fund cultural grants. The debate centered on how much they should invest. More and more legislators recognize the impact of the cultural sector on areas such as quality of life, education, and economic development."

Water is life. It forms our world and our lives. It allows us to travel; it blocks our paths. It is crucial in determining where we live and work and what we eat and drink. It is an essential biological and natural resource that people struggle to access and control. Water shapes human culture – our ways of life. It is central to many rituals and ceremonies around the world. It inspires art and music. Consider how you would tell your own water story... What does water mean to you? What role does water play in your work, your town, your neighborhood, and your worldview? Think about your water/ways...
