The Springville Museum of Art is Utah’s first museum dedicated to the visual fine arts, and a key promoter and contributor to the arts in Utah. Dedicated as a “Sanctuary of Beauty and a Temple of Contemplation” by David O. McKay, the Museum houses over 2,000 works; 1,500 of which are Utah art. Over 150 years of Utah fine art, twentieth century Russian and Soviet Socialist Realism, and American Realist art are housed in the beautiful Spanish Morrocan style building. The Museum seeks to fulfill its mission by refining minds and building character through fine art. A variety of exhibitions, concerts, programs and special events are offered throughout the year. The Museum is free and open to the public.
