The Horse: Opening Week!

Open on Saturday, July 19, 2014 for members and Monday, July 21, 2014 for non-members
Explore the Enduring Bond between Humans and Horses
The Natural History Museum of Utah is excited to host The Horse. Over time, humans have preyed upon horses, domesticated them, bred them for work and play and forged deep emotional and spiritual connections with them. Come discover the fascinating story of how humans have shaped the horse and how the horse, in turn has shaped us.
The Natural History Museum of Utah and Wells Fargo will present several programs during the exhibition’s opening week:
• Build a Horse
• Horse Evolution
• From the Horses Mouth: Meet horse-related experts and interact with tools of their trade!
The Horse Exhibition Gallery Tours: Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday
This special exhibition includes cultural objects from around the world, a hand-painted diorama depicting the evolution of the horse and interactives that invite you to test your strength in horsepower, identify different breeds and peek inside a life-size, moving horse. Horses are integral to our history and touch us as individuals. Celebrate our bond with these magnificent creatures!
In addition, explore one of Utah’s most important horse stories – the connection of the Ute people to horses. The Ute were among the first North American tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish in the 1600s. Discover how horses transformed Ute life in ways that continue to reverberate today.
The Horse: Opening Week will run through Sunday, July 27, 2014. The Horse Exhibition runs through January 4, 2015.

The tour kicks off on May 15 in Midland, Texas and includes dates in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, New York, Toronto as well as an appearance at the Amnesia Rockfest Music Festival in Montebello, Quebec, Canada on June 20th.
The VICTIMOLOGY TOUR will feature new vocalist Mike Vallely joining the band for the first time since performing with them at the 2003 Benefit Shows at the Hollywood Palladium. Vallely is the fifth vocalist in the band’s 38 years of existence and according to founding member, guitarist, primary songwriter and sole continuous member Greg Ginn, Vallely “is the perfect frontman to capture what Black Flag was, is and will be.”
Vallely affirms, “I’m excited about performing songs from the entire Black Flag catalog. I feel confident in my ability to communicate the songs — To give them their due respect and yet still make them my own. Ginn’s songwriting is truly timeless and it gives all of the material relevance right here, right now.”
Supporting BLACK FLAG on the VICTIMOLOGY TOUR will be Ginn’s own HOR, an electronic, psychedelic, instrumental band, and Brooklyn, NY two- piece atmospheric punk band Cinema Cinema.

Outdoor Concert Series: Santana

Long before the category known as “World Music” was named, Santana’s ever-evolving sound was always ahead of its time in its universal appeal. Founded in San Francisco during the late 1960’s, the band hit the Bay Area music scene with historic shows at the Fillmore and emerged onto the global stage with an epic set at Woodstock in 1969. More than 40 years and almost as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and has won ten Grammy Awards, including a record-breaking nine for 1999’s Album of the Year, Supernatural. Santana’s 2012 album Shape Shifter debuted at #16 on theBillboard Top 200, and their forthcoming album, Corazón, Santana’s first Latin music album, features collaborations with various artists including Gloria Estefan, Ziggy Marley, Cindy Blackman Santana, Wayne Shorter, and Diego Torres.

Outdoor Concert Series: Chris Isaak

After more than 25 years, and 13 albums into his career, Chris Isaak has finally created the album he’s always wanted to make. Beyond the Sun, Isaak’s first Vanguard Records release is truly a labor of love. As a child spinning his parents’ 45s in their Stockton, CA home, Isaak became and has since been obsessed with the glory days of Memphis’ Sun Studio and the visionary artists who got their starts there, including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis. Having presented his own distinctive style in music over several decades, he carries it forward still by revisiting his inspirations..
