The Arts at Utah State

From its beginnings, USU has fashioned students into well-rounded citizens by not only offering practical training but also liberal education in the arts and music. While instruction in woodworking generally concerned the craft of cabinetry and carpentry, early instructor David Hughes undoubtedly exposed students to the art of sculpture. Similarly, the first dramatic presentation at USU took place in 1895 when faculty, students, and local thespians presented The Galley Slave on the converted Chapel stage of Old Main’s south wing. This panel highlights buildings significant to the production of art here at USU in conjunction with the 2017–2018 Caine College Year of the Artscelebration.
