Our new reality is profoundly different than it was six months ago. The 2020 pandemic, Covid-19, has swept the world, and in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, we have seen unprecedented civil unrest calling for racial equality. What will these dilemmas leave in their wake? The Museum hopes to engage the community in these issues, ones that have changed our lives in unprecedented ways.

One of the central galleries in the exhibition is a community response space designed to elicit and give expression to the personal feelings, fears, and hopes for the future that have arisen for individuals in the community over the course of the last several months. This space, with the contribution of Utah artists, will undergo transformations over the course of the exhibition. Also included in the space is an interactive yarn grid through which you may share your personal emotional journey throughout the past few months.

The first artist to participate in the community response space is a local photographer, Maria Ellen Huebner, who will be exhibiting her recent portrait porch project of families from Cache Valley.

The Day After Tomorrow is divided into three themes. A Better Tomorrow focuses on transcendence, alternate realities, the divine, afterlife, and bliss. A Worse Yesterday comprises works of art that address events that have shaken the world and thrown it into crises such as world wars, nuclear proliferation, AIDS, genocide, racism, and immigration. Awry Ecosystem focuses on art by artists concerned with the environment and how humans are changing it.

The Day After Tomorrow is largely drawn from NEHMA’s permanent collection and contains many works of art that have not been exhibited before by living and deceased artists from California, Oregon, Utah, and Washington, as well as prior USU visiting professors.

This exhibition and programming have been made possible through the support of the Utah Division of Arts and Museums.
