Museum Day Free admissions

MUSEUM DAY
Free Admission at the Prehistoric Museum

Wednesday September 11, 2019, Price, UTAH: –The Prehistoric Museum presents
Museum Day Saturday September 21, 2019.

Bring family and friends this Museum Day to the Prehistoric Museum for FREE!
There are always new exhibitions at the museum.
The Prehistoric Museum is nearing completion of the first floor of the Hall of Archaeology. These exhibitions trace the archaeology of Utah starting in the Paleoindian period and ending at the arrival of the Spanish in Utah. In the few hundred years prior to Spanish contact, native peoples were facing new challenges taking place across the Colorado Plateau; including drought, loss of farming, tribal warfare and mass migrations of peoples across all of North America. Archeologists can find evidence of these changes in the artifacts left behind during this transient period in human history. Now on display are several cooking vessels illustrating changes in life style and craft during this period. One of the museums most beautiful artifacts a hide elaborately decorated with a geometric painting, is also on display. It was found cached with several hide working tools and unpainted hides. Radio carbon dates place it just before the Spanish made contact in this area.
Don’t miss our special exhibition Weaving a World: A Way of Life in the Four Corners and the Silent Auction of a selection of rugs and baskets that runs through November 9, 2019. This exhibit features a dazzling array of rugs and basketry from some of the leading weavers in the four corners region. A total of 40 contemporary Native American weavers are featured.
We hope to see you here!

The Prehistoric Museum features fossils and artifacts from Utah. The museum is open Monday through Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Standing on the Walls of Time: Ancient Art of Utah’s Cliffs and Canyons

When:  May 11th, 2019 @ 3 pm

Where: The Prehistoric Museum @ Utah State University Eastern, 155 E. Main St., Price, UT 84501

Cost: Free

 

Please join us on Saturday, May 11th @ 3pm for this free event as author Kevin T. Jones and photographer Layne Miller discuss their new book, Standing on the Walls of Time. Copies of the book will be available for purchase in the museum giftshop.  

 

In western culture, rock art has traditionally been viewed as “primitive” and properly belonging in the purview of anthropologists rather than art scholars and critics. This volume, featuring previously unpublished photographs of Utah’s magnificent rock art by long-time rock art researcher Layne Miller and essays by former Utah state archaeologist Kevin Jones, views rock art through a different lens.

 

Miller’s photographs include many rare and relatively unknown panels and represent a lifetime of work by someone intimately familiar with the Colorado Plateau. The photos highlight the astonishing variety of rock art as well as the variability within traditions and time periods. Jones’s essays furnish general information about previous Colorado Plateau cultures and shine a light on rock art as art. The book emphasizes the exqui­site artistry of these ancient works and their capacity to reach through the ages to envelop and inspire viewers.

Kevin T. Jones is the former state archaeologist of Utah. He is the author of The Shrinking Jungle, an anthropological novel set among the Aché hunter-gatherers of Paraguay, among whom Jones lived and studied in the early 1980s.

Layne Miller is a retired journalist, a lifelong resident of eastern Utah, and a long-time aficionado of the rock art of the region.

 

Reviews of the book.

 

“In our divisive age the phrase ‘cultural appropriation’ has been used as a wedge to separate people. What Kevin Jones and Layne Miller offer is the opposite: a reaching out across time with empathy, intelligence, and something like love. Follow them as they wedge down through cultural sediment, and the centuries, to make contact with the humans who once walked the land they walk now. It is a hopeful and joyful thing to think that we can talk to ghosts, that we can reach through time and join hands with those long gone.”

—David Gessner, author of All the Wild That Remains: Edward Abbey, Wallace Stegner and the American West
