Mission Statement

The purpose of the Springville Museum of Art is to provide quality life-affirming art, cultural and educational opportunities to the community of Springville (Utah's Art City), the arts community, students and educators, and the public at large.

The Museum encourages our youth to develop into thoughtful individuals and caring human beings. We recognize the seed of potential within each individual and seek to nurture growth through the creative process, positive cultural values, an acquaintance with excellence, and a belief in the beauty of life. We emphasize art, asymmetrically balanced toward traditional aesthetic values, though we also understand and appreciate visionary and modernist art. To this end, the Museum plays a unique role in Utah and the Intermountain West.


Description

Utah’s first museum for the visual arts, this beautiful Spanish Colonial Style building would be worth visiting even if there were no art. Dedicated as a "Sanctuary of Beauty and a Temple of Contemplation " by David O. McKay, the Museum houses nearly 3,000 works, 2,000 of which are Utah art. The impressive collection of 150 years of Utah fine art, twentieth century Soviet Socialist Realism and American art, and 15 exhibitions per year are displayed throughout 29 galleries and the beautiful new sculpture garden.
