Museum Day Live!
We encourage everyone to visit a museum on September 28, 2013. Participating museums and cultural institutions offer free admission to patrons presenting a Museum Day Live Ticket obtained from the Smithsonian Magazine website. Many free museums also participate.
Arts Day on the Hill
Join Art Works for Kids! and the Utah Arts Council Board of Directors for Arts Day on the Hill, where patrons of the arts meet and talk with their state senators and representatives in the Capitol Rotunda. Be among the arts-interested individuals and organizations that will gather to celebrate the arts and meet with their state representatives.
Museums Advocacy Day at the Legislature
Join the Utah Museums Association and Office of Museum Services Board for Museums Advocacy Day at the Legislature. It is an excellent day for participating museums to present displays that reflect the number and diversity of museums in Utah and have the opportunity to connect with their elected officials.
Mountain West Arts Conference
The Mountain West Arts Conference is designed to help individuals and organizations in the arts community access essential resources and create community connections throughout Utah and the Mountain West. It is also part of a long-term effort to sustain the creative industry by providing opportunities, education, tools, information and resources that serve all contributors to the arts.
Governor’s Leadership in the Arts Awards
The Governor’s Awards were created in 1980 to honor individuals and organizations who encourage and support arts and culture in Utah. In a time when innovative artistic and cultural projects are continually emerging throughout the state, we look forward to honoring Utah’s artistic visionaries and supporters each year.
We maintain and operate three exhibition spaces:
Traveling Exhibitions are curated and as a collaborative partnership with local artists, arts organizations, and institutions. Utah museums, colleges, university and community galleries, arts and cultural centers, libraries and schools all register for the exhibitions annually. By traveling these exhibits around the State and the use of the accompanying educational materials, the exhibits provide public access to quality visual art, nurture understanding of diverse art forms and cultures, promote creativity and encourage cultural activities in local communities.
We maintain several collections for the people of Utah. To see all of the collections, please visit our Digital Collections database:
- Fine Arts Collection
- Folk Arts Collection
- Public Art Collection
- Traveling Exhibit Collection
- Unclaimed Art
