The Museum boasts a collection of over 2,500 works of art from three artistic concentrations: Utah, Soviet Russian and American art.
SMA has a magnificent collection of Utah art, with over 1,500 paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures ranging from early pioneer to contemporary works of art. The collection grows each year through donations and purchases, and displays Utah's history, culture and landscape.
The Museum houses the largest public collection of 20th-century Russian and Soviet art in the western United States. These remarkable works, mostly in the Soviet Impressionist and Soviet Realist styles, deal with political, social and economic aspects of the former USSR.
The Museum has a fine collection of American realist paintings and sculpture from 1900-1960. Young students from Springville schools and the Steed family were primarily responsible for establishing this small but piognant collection of realist art.
