52nd Annual Utah All-State High School Art Show on Display

The 52nd Annual Utah All-State High School Art Show is on display now at the Springville Museum of Art.  Stunning works from 11th and 12th graders from all high schools across the state competed in this highly competitive juried show. Each high school, whether public, private or homeschooled, are given an allotment to be submitted based on their student population and past acceptance. 

“Just like a state competition in sports, this is the state competition for artists,” Springville Museum Head of Education Allison Pinegar explained. “This includes categories in painting, drawings, sculpture and mixed media, photography, video and digital art.”

There were 1,100 entries this year, and judges painstakingly whittled that number down to 300 to be on display on the main floor of the museum.

Various groups and organizations throughout Utah support these talented students by generously providing awards and scholarships for the All-State High School Art Show. The Utah State Senate selects the Senate Visual Arts Awards; the Utah State Board of Education purchases pieces for their own collection; and the Congressional Representatives select awards from each district. The Congressional Winners and family are flown back to Washington D.C. for a special presentation. The winners will have their work placed in their representative’s congressional office. 

The competition also has a number of artist groups who provide cash awards and scholarships. Some of those include: Artist Nosh, the Plein Air Painters of Utah, the Utah Watercolor Society, the Visual Arts Institute, JKR Academy, and more. This truly is a celebration of the students and each award goes to support the students directly. 

The Springville Museum of Art invites you to view these spectacular works from Feb. 3 to Mar. 22, at 2024 at 126 East 400 South.
