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.
This exhibition takes a deeper look at a work from our permanent collection, Entertaining: Favorite Ladies II, by Jeanne Leighton Lundberg Clarke. This colorful painting serves as a lens on how artists use patterns, portraits, and still-life in their paintings. This family friendly exhibition uses various interactives to help explore playful patterns in other works from our permanent collection.
In celebration of the Museum's 80th birthday, we are excited to open a new exhibition reflecting on the narrative of this historic building. Photographs, blueprints, and memoirs gathered from the Springville community invite visitors to explore the history of the oldest art museum in Utah.
Russian Stories, Soviet Ideals

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.
