The LDS Church is attempting to build a nine-story building in the Provo Missionary Training Center, and some neighbors are concerned about the building’s height. The story should not be newsworthy—as I have learned in my Boston Architecture class this summer, some neighbors almost always oppose the height of new buildings—but recently the Church used its ecclesiastical authority to help minimize the opposition, and that has made this an important story to follow.
Daniel Embree makes prints and paintings that emphasize the motion of the human figure and that incorporate personal symbols to tell a story.
He received a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts from Brigham Young Univeristy in 2009. During a residency at the Vermont Studio Center in 2010 he created his most recent body of work featuring men in suits and tuxedos.
Embree has exhibited work in the Springville Museum of Art in Springville, UT, the Fitchburg Art Museum in Fitchburg, MA, and in gallery spaces in the Midwest, Utah, and Massachusetts, including 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington, MA.
He currently lives in the greater Boston area with his husband, Michael Barber. He is working on a master's degree at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.
