Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r The 92nd Annual Spring Salon is now on display at the Springville Museum of Art. This exhibit of works by Utah artists will continue to be exhibited at the museum through July 9. The museum is located at 126 E. 400 South in Springville.

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.
