The Springville Museum of Art, Springville, UT

At its official inception, the Springville Museum of Art was dedicated as a “Sanctuary of Beauty and a Temple of Contemplation.” As the museum has grown and expanded since those early years, it has remained true to that dedication. The lovely Spanish Colonial building has been host to many weddings and events and houses two permanent collections. New exhibits come frequently, so you can visit dozens of times and see different things. Additionally, the Sculpture Garden is a beautiful place to wander outdoors. This well-curated museum is a delight for lovers of art young and old.

Springville Museum of Art Exhibits

There are currently eight exhibits on display at the Springville Museum of Art. The diversity and quality of the exhibits prove that there really is something for everyone to enjoy. One of the museum's most impressive exhibits is "Russian Stories, Soviet Ideals," a collection of 20th-century Russian art on display until June 1, 2018. The high-quality, dramatic artwork of the exhibit focuses on the power of the human figure. At the time the museum began collecting Russian art, the art was very affordable. This gave the museum the opportunity to have an exceptional exhibit of Russian and American realism. The realism of these pieces offers an interesting contrast to the landscapes and impressionist pieces in the Utah visual fine art collection.

According to the Museum website, over 15 exhibitions are on display every year. In 2017, that includes the 44th Annual Quilt Show, "Sanctuaries of the Mind," "Round Up: Icons of the West," and more. Exhibitions that feature local artists, like the "Three-Mile Radius" and "Glimpses of Springville" are always a treat.

The Springfield Museum of Art hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. You can check their calendar for upcoming events. For more information, visit the museum online, or call (801) 489-2727. The museum is located at 126 E 400 S, Springville, UT 84633.
