If you’ve never visited, the Springville Museum of Art is worth seeing for the building alone, a Spanish colonial revival jewel designed by Claud S. Ashworth and dedicated by LDS Apostle David O. McKay. It’s the oldest visual arts museum in Utah.
The Spring Salon was first held in 1922, begun by students and teachers of 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 invites all artists in Utah to participate in the 95th Annual Spring Salon, a juried competition that showcases the diversity and quality of contemporary Utah art.
