93rd Annual Spring Salon
April 26, 2017 - July 8, 2017 

The Spring Salon was first held in 1922, begun by students and teachers of Springville High School who wanted to exhibit and promote original artwork. The Salon has been held annually since that time, except during World War II when fuel and other goods were rationed nationwide. The Springville Museum of Art continues the tradition today and invites all artists in Utah to participate in the 93nd Annual Spring Salon. This exhibition is a juried competition that showcases the diversity and quality of contemporary Utah art. 

From the Studio of Arnold Friberg
February 15, 2017 - May 13, 2017

This exhibition offers a behind-the-scenes look at the sketches that adorned Friberg’s studio walls and the items he used for reference and study. Drawn directly onto the Friberg studio walls, these works in progress encourage us to see beyond the Masterpieces and explore the raw process behind their creation. 

The Classical Tradition: Simplicity, Serenity, and Harmony
November 16, 2016 - August 5, 2017

In contemporary artistic practice, an increasing number of artists strive to emulate the serene harmonies and mathematical order championed in antiquity. Commonly referred to as the Classical Tradition, these principles inspire artists to seek for perfection in form and theory through an ongoing observation, study, and execution of these time-honored ideals. 

Sanctuaries of Mind
September 1, 2015 - September 2018

 In this exhibition, works of art from the Museum’s permanent collection are presented in three categories: External Sanctuaries, Sanctuaries of Daily Experience, and Sanctuaries Within. 

Russian Stories, Soviet Ideals
January 21, 2015 - June 1, 2017

Russian Stories, Soviet Ideals is a fascinating exploration of the duality of the ideals of the centralized Soviet government and the realities of everyday life for the Russian (and non-Russian) people – politically, at work, at home, and on the land.
