Artwork like identity is ever-evolving. For the artists featured in SELF, making art is a way to uncover and sort through personal identities, experiences, and values.  These uniquely personal works of art become vessels for viewers to explore their own complicated and contradictory aspects of life and self. The personal becomes the universal.



This new gallery space will change frequently as we highlight the most recent additions to the Museum's collection, as well as works significant to Utah's art history.
