Tate Foundation, this course will bring scholars, authors and train aficionados from Utah and the West  to talk about the significance of joining the East and West coasts by train. The SPIKE150 celebrations along with themes of Chinese, Irish and Mormon workers, scientific and economic endeavor and the relationship between art and the railroads will be explored.
