Help us Grow our Permanent Collection

If you are looking to sell or donate works of art to the Springville Museum of Art please email HBarrett@springville.org with images and the following information: artist, title, creation date, medium, dimensions, provenance (history of ownership), and description. If offered for sale, please indicate a sale price.

Works offered to the Museum for sale or donation are presented to the Museum’s Collection Committee for decisions on acceptance or refusal. The Committee considers the relevance of the piece to the Museum’s collection and the cost of storage, conservation, and ongoing care. Because of our collecting policies, limited storage space and staff the Museum cannot accept everything offered for donation. After initial acceptance by the Collections Committee, works of art are presented to the Museum’s Board of Trustees for final vote and acceptance. This process can take 1-3 months. Please email HBarrett@springville.org with any questions.

To be considered for donation in a calendar year, offers of donation must be received by NOVEMBER 30th of that year.
