Utah Air Quality Lecture
Face it. No one really understands why Utah can't figure out the bad-air equation. The Stegner Center Greenbag Series, "From Particles to People: Why Utah Struggles with Air Quality and How This Affects Human Health," tries to get to the bottom of it. You'll hear from Kerry Kelly, assistant professor of chemical engineering at the University of Utah, who's also vice chair of the State Air Quality Board. Her recent research activities have been motivated by local and regional air-quality challenges. Dr. Robert Paine, chief of the University Health Care Pulmonary Division, will speak about his ongoing research to the causes and treatment of acute lung injury. S.J. Quinney College of Law, Room 6613, 383 South University St., 801-585-3440, Tuesday, Feb. 16, 12:15-1:15 p.m., free and open to public, Bit.ly/1PEess9

Adopt A Rabbit Month
What's up, Doc? Did you know that February is Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month? Really. In fact, rabbits are the third-most adopted pets at the Humane Society of Utah. And why are they good pets? They offer the companionship of a dog and can be litter trained like a cat. They're good apartment dwellers, they live long and prosper and don't cause the allergies that dogs and cats do. Humane Society of Utah, 4242 S. 300 West, Murray, 801-506-2416, Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, noon-5 p.m., $10/one rabbit, $15/two, UtahHumane.org

Winter Art Fundraiser
Browse through the Winter Art Salon with the elite or your next-door neighbor for this four-day fundraiser for the Kimball Art Center. Friday will be a preview party with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres amid art, jewelry, exhibitions and other luxury vendors. The operative word is luxury, as tickets to this event are $250 per adult. The day offers performances by the Utah Symphony Youth Guild and children's art activities. During the Presidents Day weekend, you'll visit a variety of luxury vendors and highly recognized artists of a wide range of styles and price points. All proceeds to benefit the Kimball Art Center's exhibitions, events and free art education for children. Kimball Art Center, 1401 Kearns Blvd., Park City, 435-649-8882, VIP preview: Friday, Feb. 12, 6-9 p.m., $250; public exhibition: Saturday-Monday, Feb. 13-15, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily, free and open to public, KimballArtCenter.org/Events/Art-Salon
