92nd annual Spring Salon now on display
Jun 02, 2016 12:53PM
The Springville Museum of Art's annual Spring Salon art exhibit was first held in 1922. It was begun by students and teachers at Springville High School who wanted to exhibit and promote original artwork. The salon has been held annually since that time except during World War II when fuel and other goods were rationed nationwide. The Springville Museum of Art continues the tradition today and each year invites all artists in Utah to participate in the salon. This exhibition is a juried competition that showcases the diversity and quality of contemporary Utah art.
This year, artists brought in 770 entries for the salon and 230 were accepted into the show. Of those picked to be in the salon exhibit, 31 were selected to receive awards. These works span a variety of mediums, styles and subject matter and showcase the talent present throughout the Utah art scene.
The 92nd Annual Spring Salon was made possible by the Utah County Commission, the George Q. Morris Foundation and Springville City.
The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sundays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. The museum is closed Mondays and holidays. Admission is free. For more information call 801-489-2727 or check out smofa.org.
