Virtual Exhibition / Beginning May 28, 2021

If the earth beneath your feet could speak, what might it tell you? The exhibition Our Valley Speaks: A Sanpete Experience amplifies the voices of the valley, connecting audiences to the sacred, historic heartbeat of this magnificent landscape.
Artists from Utah and beyond will share stories of local sites. Historians will speak of the influential people and places that have shaped the lore and culture of Sanpete Valley. Personal recollections and family chronicles will illustrate a profound connection to the land. And the rocks, birds and plants of Utah’s bounty will enrich and connect the exhibition to the endless skies and vistas.
Visitors can download the Popwalk app to their smartphones, which will guide them to the locations where these tales will be told. The entire valley will become a natural amphitheater—a connective, living museum without walls or limits; and a portal to understanding the power of the landscape and those who have left its legacies to us.
