American Farmer On Thursday's Access Utah

Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

On Thursday’s Access Utah our theme is farming. In the first half of the program we’ll talk about the AgrAbility program, which helps farmers, ranchers and their family members remain in agriculture when facing limitations due to aging, disease, injury, illness, or other disability. In the second half we’ll talk about an exhibit now showing at the USU Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art called “American Farmer,” which features photographic portraits in addition to interviews with farmers from across the United States, telling the inspiring stories of the stewards of this land.

Our guests will include Randall Bagley, AgrAbility of Utah Program Coordinator; Ned Nelson, a Cache Valley farmer; photographer Paul Mobley; and Bolton Colburn, Curator of Collections & Exhibitions at the USU Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.
