Art Beat: Canyon Changes

WildernessTHOMAS M. SPINDLE’S (BFA ’07) photographs reveal the way development has cut into Provo Canyon to make it more accessible. His recent exhibit, Things as They Really Are: The Changing Face of Provo Canyon, hung in the HFAC’s Gallery 303 May 1–15.

“I really hope that people will leave with an awareness of how we’re taking the wildness out of the wilderness,” Spindle says. “I want people to look and say, ‘Do we really need all this?’”
