Huntsville, Eden, and Liberty

A.K.A. Ogden Hole – the original 1825 name given to this valley paradise in honor of Peter Skene Ogden, British trapper and explorer. Ogden was the first European to enter, map and describe the incredible place that would eventually become Utah’s best kept adventure secret.

Ogden Hole offers breathtaking landscapes, diverse wildlife, year round outdoor recreation and fine dining.  Experience the greatest snow on earth as you descend the slopes at any of three world-class resorts – Snow Basin, Powder Mountain, Nordic Valley. Catch air wakeboarding at Pineview reservoir. Horseback ride, mountain bike or hike miles of pristine mountain trails. Play 18 holes at legendary Wolf Creek golf course.

Corner 25th St & Adams
Ongoing through Saturday, April 29, 2017
Molly Morin:
Programming for People: A human-powered algorithmic drawing.
This project will use a set of rules (an algorithm) driven by coin flips and dice rolls to generate a composition within the PLATFORMS matrix. It is a participatory exercise in order and chaos, and an experiment in computer-less coding. You are invited to join me in play to build a work upon best-laid plans, random chance, and human intervention.

Lenka Konopasek
My installation is made from individual silver strips put together in a visual curtain that shimmers and changes according to the air movement. It creates a mirage that reflects and breaks down the surrounding environment. I want the viewer to question what is real and what is perceived.

Alexis Furlong
I am interested in products that are created for ease and single use, whose impacts are infinite. Their functions are ephemeral, but their material immortal. Once used, these transient materials are often stowed away, or thrown out to weave and embed themselves into the natural landscape. The intention of my work is to explore this relationship between the synthetic and the natural by weaving organic forms out of these materials and then installing them into a “synthetic landscape”.
Alexis will also have her students create a work on a second PLATFORM.

Jessica Ritter Hollon
Jessica will recreate a beloved bitmap memory.


K Stevenson

In her work, K employs printmaking, mixed media and sculpture to explore the fluid, paradoxical, and trickster nature of memory and perception. ‘Memory is what we forget with.’

“I find it curious that we can have such a fixed notion of who we are, how we know ourselves and the world around us. However, possibility- along with its companion, creativity- reside in the crevices and fissures of the moments and spaces where we let go of this stasis and certainty; where we sift and knead the dense, often incongruent, layers of experience and personal archeology.” Arts & Culture Categories: * VISUAL ARTS, Art

Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood. Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless.

A SHORT HISTORY OF OGDEN VALLEY

What happened? Peter Skene Ogden and his troop of trappers and Indian scouts entered the valley in May of 1825, trapped nearly 600 beaver and described the valley as totally awesome! Stumbling across rival American trappers on the Weber River who claimed he was trespassing, Ogden soon found his circumstances uncertain, if not precarious. Threatening to take possession of his booty and promising higher pay to his men, rebellion and skirmish ensued. Suddenly relieved of his pelts and men, Mr. Ogden, obliged to make a hasty retreat, inadvertently staged Ogden Valley’s first (and spontaneous) race on an out-and-back course, narrowly escaping with his life! So unfolded the unprecedented debut of outdoor adventure in Ogden Valley! Ogden never returned again, leaving behind only the legacy of his name – Ogden’s Hole.

Some 30 years following the discovery of Ogden Valley, Mormon settlers founded three mountain towns, still proudly flourishing today – Huntsville, Eden and Liberty. Denoted simply by the acronym HEL, the irreverent irony of a place so heavenly is comically fitting to the original misadventure Mr. Ogden and his Hudson Bay Co. trappers.
