There is an art collection being displayed at Tooele Junior High. The Traveling Exhibit Program is a statewide outreach service of the Utah Division of Arts Museums. The Exhibit “Early Utah Masterpieces: Alice Art Collection” is now on display in the Tooele Jr. High library. Tooele Jr. High invites students, parents, and the community to come and view the exhibit during regular school hours 8:00a.m. to 3:00 p.m.. The public must check in at the office.
Early Utah Masterpieces is a unique project that is designed to preserve a collection of original oil paintings by early Utah artists. This extraordinary cultural resource from the State Fine Art Collection represents a snapshot of Utah’s grand artistic tradition. This exhibit ensures an opportunity to promote, exhibit and experience the distinct and vital role the visual arts have played in our state’s history.
Many masterpieces featured in this exhibit are among the first purchases of the State Fine Art Collection. The original collection purchased was appropriately named in honor of the visionary woman who sought to maintain them, Alice Merrill Horne. The Alice Art Collection has grown from its modest beginnings of a few oil paintings highlighting the majestic and dramatic landscapes of Utah into the State Fine Art Collection of more than 1,300 works of art.

THE LEGEND OF THE ROADRUNNER
The roadrunner is not the prettiest bird in the world. He does not soar like the eagles or swoop down on his prey like the hawks. He does not attract admirers with his beautiful feathers or graceful airs. He does not sing like the angels or make a lovely sight floating on the lake. He does not command attention by his looks or demeanor or power. What is there about the roadrunner?
The little roadrunner is fast. But that is not what makes him successful. It may help him get where he wants to go faster. What he has is direction. Do you see a roadrunner zigzagging down the road, wondering where to turn next? No, he’s headed in a straight line, his eye on the prize and single minded in his pursuit. He has direction. If there is an obstacle in sight, either the obstacle moves or he goes around it. Beep! Beep! He knows where he wants to go, how to get there, and does not let the obstacles, the anvils, the Wiley Coyotes of the world stop him. Beep! Beep!
To Our Students at Tooele Jr. High School:
What is your direction? Do you know where you are going? Be like the roadrunner, plan to head in a straight direction, keep your eye on the prize, and do your best! Be sure not to let any obstacle get in your way. As we are coming to the end of the school year, don’t let your grades be obstacle. All 8th grade students preparing to go into high school, you will need a 2.0 G.P.A. with no more than one “F” to participate in high school activities next fall. Don’t let your grades dictate what you get to do. 7th grade students, it is important for you to get passing grades in all of your classes as well. Students, you know where you want to go, so be a ROADRUNNER! KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING AND DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO GET THERE!
