Discover Unveiled Masterpieces of Utah and Danish Art Spanning Generations Springville, Utah.

The Springville Museum of Art is thrilled to announce its upcoming exhibition, “The Most Noble Subject: Artists, Muses, and Inspiration in the Gail Miller and Kim Wilson Collection.” This captivating exhibit will grace the museum’s galleries from November 15, 2023, to March 16, 2024, offering a rare opportunity to see this incredible private collection in person. The exhibition will feature masterpieces of Utah and Danish art including works by historic Utah artists John Hafen, H.L.A. Culmer, Alfred Lambourne, J.T. Harwood, Minerva Teichert, James Christensen, LeConte Stewart, and C.C.A. Christensen. These masterpieces have never before been exhibited publicly. 

The collection will also feature works by living and contemporary Utah artists including Al Rounds, Annette Everett, Jeremy Winborg, Bryan Mark Taylor, Gary Ernest Smith, and Nancy Glazier. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience these works of art in person. 

H.L.A “Harry” Culmer painted magnificent scenes of the American West in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He opined that the mountains were “the most noble subject for an artists’ brush.” 

This exhibition will explore what the artists in the exhibition considered their “most noble subject.” It will share where they found inspiration and prompt visitors to consider: “what inspires you to create?” 

Founded as Utah’s first museum for the visual arts, the Springville Museum of Art is committed to fostering beauty and contemplation through life-affirming art and experience. The Museum’s mission aligns seamlessly with the collection’s spirit, bridging historical and contemporary to preserve and share the history of Utah art. Housed within a breathtaking 45,000-square-foot Spanish Colonial building just off the freeway in Springville, Utah, the Museum stands as a beacon of artistic inspiration, welcoming visitors from all walks of life to engage with the transformative power of art. The exhibition will run from November 15, 2023 to March 16, 2024. Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.  to 5 p.m., with extended hours until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays.
