Spike 150 Exhibition

Click here for full description and guidelines

*Please note that July 2nd is the deadline for artist ideas/proposals OR existing artworks.
Artist ideas/proposals are due July 2nd, with completed artworks due March 2019. 

On May 10th, 2019, the State of Utah and the Department of Heritage & Arts will commemorate the 150th anniversary marking the completion of the nation’s First Transcontinental Railroad. The joining of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads occurred at Promontory Summit, UT in 1869. As part of a host of Spike 150 activities aimed to inspire, educate, and reflect on this legacy, the Utah Division of Arts and Museums (UA&M), Rio Gallery (located in Salt Lake City), will be facilitating an exhibition March 22–June 14, 2019 on this topic. Funding is provided by the State of Utah, the Department of Heritage & Arts, the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, and the Spike 150 Commission.

This exhibition will include both invited artists & artists accepted via an open call process, and will include a side-by-side curatorial mentorship with one invited mentee from the community. Artists both curated and selected from the open call, will be paid for participation. Proposals for new work, as well as existing works that relate to the topic, will be accepted. Additionally, funding has been set aside for the acquisition of a limited number of works of art from this exhibition into the State of Utah Alice Merrill Horne Art Collection. 

The history of the First Transcontinental Railroad and its legacy in Utah provides ample topics for exploration and representation. Topics and subjects related to this event may include, but are not limited to: transportation, travel, industry, technology, infrastructure, innovation, immigrant and labor issues, impact on Indigenous peoples,  environmental issues, globalization, historical figures & stories, related geographic locales, Transcontinental Railroad routes, westward expansion, social and economic impacts, etc. We welcome any and all aesthetic explorations that relate to the topic.

Social Impact Study

The Utah Division of Arts & Museums is partnering with Thanksgivng Point to conduct a statewide Social Impact Study among 8 cultural organizations in Utah.

The purpose of a social impact study is to determine what impact a cultural organization has on the communities they serve. The goal is to measure how attending a cultural organization can improve family/personal well-being, health, knowledge and understanding of others and your community.Social Impact is a broad term used to describe a significant positive change that addresses a pressing social challenge.

The 8 institutions that are participating in the study include:
Utah Museum of Fine Arts
Springville Museum of Art
Clark Planetarium
Brigham City Museum of Art & History
Tracy Aviary
Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum
Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art
Red Butte Garden

If you are interested in participating in the study and live near one of the participating institutions, please fill out the application below to answer a few questions related to the study.

Arts Ed & Learning

Arts education and learning are vital to the development of creative, well-rounded, independent thinkers. An ideal arts education curriculum for children and youth consists of the literary arts, dance, folk arts, theater, music, storytelling, media and visual arts in ongoing, sequential instruction from kindergarten through grade 12. Outside the classroom, arts learning takes place in after-school and community settings. Through the arts, we aid in nurturing intelligent, capable, compassionate individuals who will be tomorrow’s artists, arts patrons, innovators, creatives, and engaged citizens.


The Arts Learning Grant is offered to schools, school districts, non-profit organizations, social service agencies, community centers, and local arts agencies in the area of arts education. To download guidelines and online application instructions, please click on the name of each grant.

  • Arts Learning GrantFunding for interactive and comprehensive arts education-based projects where a qualified teaching artist(s) works with a specific community population in an organization or school.
  • Utah PTA Arts Education Grants, for first-time applicants. UA&M partners with the Utah PTA to award grants up to $500 for art programs in Utah schools sponsored by individual PTA units. These funds match those the local PTA provides for enhancing art programs for students.

Professional Development Workshops for K-12 Educators
Visit the Arts Education Program’s EVENTBRITE page to register for upcoming professional development workshops for K-12 teachers. To find professional development opportunities happening across the state for educators, access the Arts Education Program’s statewide professional development calendar and the Art Works for Kids statewide professional development workshops calendar.

Teacher Initiated Project Guidelines, in which an artist works one-on-one with a K-12 teacher to instruct the teacher in a specific art form. The emphasis is on the teacher’s personal growth in knowledge and skills in an art form of his/her choice. This experience does not require the teacher to apply this in the classroom; it supports personal growth in the arts. Access online TIP application.

Poetry Out Loud
Poetry Out Loud LogoThe National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation  partners with Utah Arts & Museums to support Poetry Out Loud, and encourages Utah’s youth to learn about great poetry through memorization and performance.

Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program

Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program LogoUtah Arts and Museums, Art Works for Kids!, the Utah State Board of Education, and the Utah Parent Teacher Association, the Utah Arts Education Partnership (UAEP) is an operating alliance for the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTSALP). This continuing  initiative, funded by the Utah Legislature, integrates quality arts education into the curriculum of Utah elementary schoolchildren by: funding the salaries of arts specialists to work side-by-side with classroom teachers and district arts coordinators to provide curriculum support and administrative coordination; promoting partnerships with universities to offer pre-service and professional development training; and providing one-time money to purchase equipment and art materials. The BTSALP is administered through the Utah State Board of Education.


Arts education offers many connections to resources for professional development offered through universities, school districts, arts companies and organizations of arts professionals. We also highlight links to toolkits, lesson plans, curriculum development and funding to help you strengthen your school arts programs.

Visual Art in Utah

The 1899 “Art Bill”, created by the Utah legislature, was the first state-funded arts council in the nation. The law’s purpose was to advance the interest of fine arts; expand the influence of art in education; sponsor an annual art exhibition; present public lectures on art; and establish a state art collection.


The Alice Gallery, located in the Glendinning Home and main offices of Utah Arts & Museums, features selections from the State Fine Art Collection as well as exhibits of local artists works.






The Rio Gallery, located in the historic Rio Grande building, hosts the Statewide Annual Exhibition, the Design Arts exhibition, and artist group exhibitions chosen from community proposals.





Visual Art Exhibitions and Fellowships

Exhibition Proposals for Alice & Rio Galleries

The Rio & Alice Galleries were created as a service to Utah artists and the community at large. We welcome proposals from Utah artists, arts organizations, and independent curators age 18 and over. These include solo exhibitions, small group shows, or larger curated exhibits. All visual arts media including new genres are accepted. All work must be original.

Statewide Annual Competition and Exhibition

The Statewide Annual Competition and Exhibition provides exposure to both emerging and established Utah artists through public display, publicity, awards and publication of catalogs. This juried exhibition focuses on different disciplines, rotating categories in a three year cycle that includes: painting, sculpture & installation work; fine crafts, photography & video/digital works; and mixed media and works on paper. Statewide Annual is juried by two distinguished out-of-state jurors. Statewide Annual 2018 applications will be open September 21 – October 22.

Visual Arts Fellowship

The Visual Arts Fellowship Program awards two $10,000 fellowships annually to outstanding professional artists to acknowledge their artistic excellence and encourage their careers. Exhibitions featuring invited past fellowship recipients are periodically held.

Traveling Exhibition Program

Traveling exhibitions are curated 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.

Design Arts Utah

Design is the creative beginning of any human-initiated arrangement of materials. We strive to help the citizens of the state see, experience, use and value the art of design that surrounds us. Design Arts Utah sponsors and mounts an annual exhibition. The Design Arts Competition is dedicated to the promotion of excellence in the diverse fields of design in Utah. This exhibition features work submitted by Utah designers that have been selected by a juror prominent in the design field. Each year’s exhibition displays designs, prototypes, and produced samples by some of the best in Utah’s various design fields.

Public Art in Utah

Public art   "Escher's Elevator" (detail) by Jack Archibald is most commonly associated with a sculpture or painting in areas accessible or visible to the public, but it can and does go well beyond those media. Terrazzo floors, etched glass, ceiling panels, textiles, stair railings, risers, pavers, planters, landscape, fences and grates are just some of the possibilities for public art contributions to public spaces. The possibilities are as vast as the imaginations of artists and architects.

Utah’s Percent-for-Art Act

In 1985, the Legislature passed the Utah Percent-for-Art Act (Utah Code Title 9, Chapter 6, Sections 401-409), which designates 1% of construction costs of new and/or renovated state public buildings is added to the project for the purpose of commissioning, maintaining and conserving site specific art at, on, or in the facility. The collection includes a broad range of media from textiles and glass to stone and metal monumental works.

Public Art Call for Qualifications

Find out about local, regional, national and international calls for public arts commissions.

Public Art Collection

There are over 200 pieces in Utah’s Digital Public Art Collection, all created since 1985. Look here to find out what public art is in your community.

State Fine Art Collection

Utah’s state-owned art collection began in 1899. Alice Merrill Horne was a candidate for the state legislature on a platform of support for the arts. Once she was elected to the House of Representatives she sponsored a bill to create a state arts organization and to establish a state collection of artwork. In honor of that sponsor, the collection was named the “Alice Art Collection.”  The continued acquisition of artwork by Utah artists comes from purchases selected by the Collection Acquisition Committee and generous donations from patrons and artists.

The collection continues to grow annually by purchases and donations and provides impressive documentation of the history of Utah art. The collection is on display at the Governor’s Mansion, the Glendinning Home, the Rio Grande Depot, the State Capitol building, the Scott Matheson Courthouse, and other state buildings. Selections from the collection are also included in the Traveling Exhibition Program.

Bite-Size Poetry

Bite-Size Poetry started in 2009 as the brainchild of Utah Poet Laureate 2006-2012, Katharine Coles. Katharine’s idea was to infuse a bit of poetry into the everyday lives of Utahns in a manageable, “bite-size” format. She has said of the project: “Lots of people think they don’t have time for poetry, but in truth, most poems are short, and everyone has time for a one-minute poetic encounter.”

She invited notable Utah poets to write a poem they could read aloud in one or two minutes, and the poets were videotaped reading their poetry. The program so far has run from 2009-2011 and in 2015, with production provided by KUED-TV in the early years and by TWIG Media Lab in 2015.
