It's wonderful to have the SUMA in Cedar City as a small and nicely curated center for students and families. Great programs are offered as well as the rotating exhibits.

Small art museum. Stop in for a few minutes. It is free, so you can donate what you are able to for the museum. Nice stroll through trees just outside.
