Tippetts Gallery

Twain Tippetts was invited to join the faculty at Utah State University in 1956 as head of the Fine Arts Department that included the academic units of visual art, theater and music. Once on campus he became actively involved in "all things art." Through the years he headed the university's cultural arts activities, concert and lecture series and led numerous cultural arts tours both domestically and internationally. He headed the university's Performing Arts Series that brought the country's best touring companies and guest artists to campus to perform in the Chase Fine Arts Center. He became a keeper and curator of the university's growing art collection, eventually heading the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art prior to his retirement. Following his retirement, he pursued a keen personal interest in photography. He was supported throughout his career at USU by his wife, Florence Page Tippets, often hosting the university's guest performers. In recognition of his career in the fine arts, the Tippetts Galleries in the Chase Fine Arts Center are named in his honor.
