HISTORY CONFERENCE ON RURAL UTAH
Whether you think of yourself as a history buff or not, the Utah State Historical Society's Rural Utah, Western Issues, the 2016 annual State History Conference, should pique your interest. Why? Because Utah is spending your tax dollars in the ongoing public lands debate. First thing in the conference is "Historical Perspectives on the Public Lands Debate in the American West," where you can hear about struggles to control access to natural resources. The keynote address, "Quicksand, Cactus and the Power of History in Polarized Times" covers life lessons from American cowboys. Utah Cultural Celebration Center, 1355 W. 3100 South, West Valley City, 801-245-7225, Friday, Sept. 30, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., free, registration required, Bit.ly/2dakRke

You don't have to be a teacher to enjoy Evening for Educators. The event focuses on the importance of preservation, investigates the artwork of Joseph Cornell and talks about pocket galleries, collecting, documenting and saving important artifacts. Participants can embellish a personal museum-in-a-box as an enduring memento and receptacle for their own memories. These programs are offered to art teachers from around the state, SUU students and community members as well. There's only space for 30 participants, so call now. Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA), 13 S. 300 West, Cedar City, 435-586-5425, Tuesday, Oct. 4, 6-9 p.m., free, open to public, call toreserve space, SUU.edu/PVA
