feedback Your end-piece by John Shuff [“My Turn” August 2016] reminded me of one of my own father’s “values” as expressed to me as a teen-ager: “I will never do anything that will make you ashamed that I am your father nor do I expect you to do anything that will make me ashamed that you are my son!” He never did and I never did! —Bruce Sherman I just saw the June issue of Salt Lake. I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled we are with the United Jewish Federartion of Utah’s spread in “On the Town.” It is fabulous; the layout beautiful and the location terrific. You said that you would try to get it in and you did. We can’t thank you enough. Our event was a huge success—more people in attendance and more money raised than ever before. Having the exposure in “On the Town” is a wonderful finale. PS. I am the one in the polka-dot suit. —Judy Horwitz Co-Chair of the The Jewish Federation of Utah; Ben Gurion Society dinner
I read a little article on the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art in your most recent edition. It was interesting, and very well written, but some of the items you mentioned were incorrect and bothered me just enough to spur this email. Most important first! In the article you mention that Ideologue, an exhibition completely envisioned and organized by Rebecca Maksym, curator, as one of Kristian Anderson’s “triumphs.” This was extremely troubling. Rebecca is a very talented curator and it is distressing that she was not given credit for her hard and very impressive work. She has been the heart and soul of the witty and thoughtful curation the Museum has seen in recent years and should really have been recognized for that. Last but not least—UMOCA turned 85 years this year. Happy Birthday to a wonderful institution! 85-year aniversary. —Chrissy Upton
compelling exhibits, outreach and growth at the museum, Executive Director Kristian Anderson emphasized that all credit should go to his exceptional staff that includes Becca Maksym, Elly Baldwin, Sarina Ehrgott, Michelle Sulley and Jared Steffensen, among others.
