Utah does have some fine arts; worth a visit

The UMFA is located on the University of Utah campus, readily accessible from downtown SLC via the TRAX red line (I used the Stadium stop but South Campus might be okay too). The... read more

My daughter and I enjoyed going to the museum on a cold winter day. We practically had the place to ourselves and it was fantastic!

The UMFA is located on the University of Utah campus, readily accessible from downtown SLC via the TRAX red line (I used the Stadium stop but South Campus might be okay too). The museum is not huge but there is good space to accommodate touring exhibits plus the permanent collection. The latter focuses on painting but there is a small... More

It's fun to go here on Free museum days (First Wednesdays and Third Saturdays). The third Saturdays also have special craft activities that you can participate in. They are aimed for families and children, but I often enjoy decorating clay plates, making a sculpture, etc as well. The museum staff is very friendly and explains the exhibits that are going...

There seems to be very few exhibits in here. Not being a fan of modern art, I found it to be uninteresting. On the plus side, I don't think it costs much, if anything, so you can take a quick look while you are in the downtown area, and move on to something else if you don't like igt.

This is not a large museum but I enjoyed my visit. The building itself is quite artistic with a huge flight of stairs and a room of ribbons hanging from the ceiling. Though I am not really that into art I liked it.

Visited the Utah Fine Arts in September on a trip to Salt Lake City. They showing an exhibit on Rural English Landscape Painters which was outstanding. The whole arrangement was well done and spent an enjoyable afternoon there. The cafeteria there is also very pleasant so make a day of it and eat there. The physical facility is new and... More

A good and varied collection, including modern installations and historical western work. Fairly expensive entry fee. Free parking across the street.

This museum was very peaceful on a hot August afternoon. There are lovely Old Master paintings and changing exhibits. The café was a nice place to relax with a cold drink.
