The University of Utah was awarded a $500,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation last December. It's the first time the organization recognized the university's arts and humanities program.

Cache County School District

A Cache Valley elementary school art teacher was fired after he had his class pass around prints of classical art from a collection of postcards from the school’s library, which included prints of nude paintings. The teacher, Mateo Rueda said he didn’t know those paintings were part of the set and would not have used them. This story drew international press coverage. Rueda and Cache County School district have reached an agreement in the case. We’ll talk about it on Tuesday’s Access Utah. Our guests will include Mateo Rueda and the mother of one of the students.
