Jean Piaget is quoted as saying “if you want to be creative, stay in part a child, with the creativity and invention that characterizes children before they are deformed by adult society.” The new exhibit at the Uintah County Heritage Museum is celebrating just that. Entitled ‘Go Out and Play’, the exhibit features artists from Utah and Arizona in a variety of mediums. Each piece reflects how traditional play has been trivialized and is in jeopardy by modern screen time. The description of the exhibit states, “ Our memories of playing as children are powerful. Children’s everyday experiences, adventures, and projects are often rehearsals for adult life. Play gives children a taste of freedom, encounters with uncertainty, opportunities for risk-taking and responsibility, and unscheduled time for imagination. This exhibition focuses on artist memories to summon the viewers’ childhood markers of place and time.” The museum curator says “the exhibit focuses on reigniting the viewers’ childhoods through interaction and reminiscing.” The displays started March 4th and runs
until April 1st.
