Chase Home Museum of Utah Folk Arts

The Chase Home Museum of Utah Folk Arts is the only museum in the country dedicated to displaying a state-owned collection of contemporary folk art. It features objects made by living Utah artists from the state’s American Indian, rural, occupational and ethnic communities. The Museum offers a snapshot of Utah’s contemporary culture and heritage. The Chase Home, built more than 150 years ago in a traditional hall-and-parlor style from adobe bricks, is a fine example of 19th century folk art.

A workshop space on the first floor features both folk arts and museum programming at the Chase Home. We offer classes, hands-on workshops, artist visits, and many more events. Follow our Facebook page for the latest announcements.

The workshop space also serves as a gallery for temporary exhibitions of Utah folk and traditional arts or new work featuring emerging folk art genres or innovations of tradition. We accept proposals for 8-12 week exhibitions by Utah artists. See our Exhibition Guidelines to submit a proposal.
