USU Eastern Proudly Displays Artwork From Tyson Chappell


Tyson Chappell has made a name for himself in and out of Castle Country with his remarkable photography skills. Recently, this was proven as Chappell’s photo was featured in the National Geographic Traveler. The photo, “Swell’s Gate,” promoted the San Rafael Swell and tourism in Utah.

This opportunity was very large for both Chappell’s career as a photographer and to promote The Swell. Another great opportunity has come to Chappell as one his pieces makes its home in Price. Now in place is a “massive” 6×16 metal depiction of USU Eastern featured at night.

As Chappell’s specialty, night photography is exceptional for him. He has grown a reputation as the “dark sky photographer” and this new addition makes a significant impact on those that enter the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center, located on the university’s campus. The depiction has been known to leave a lasting impression.

“As I call it ‘the WOW factor,’ which leaves a lasting impression,” said Chappell’s agent Shalee Johansen. “As the rest of the country views his photography through a national magazine, we get to enjoy the BIGGEST of them all right here in our home town. What a great gift, and way to share a little amazing beauty in the dark skies of our area.”

“USU at Night” is now available to be viewed. Postcards are also available in a number of local businesses, such as gas stations. His metal, canvases and print are available at the Gallery on Main located in Helper as well as his website,
