Utah Division of Arts and Museums

Utah Arts & Museums seeks to advance the quality of life for all through arts experiences and cultural opportunities. The Division provides more than 500 outreach services, including arts education, professional development, exhibitions, community outreach, and direct matching grants to schools, local arts agencies, organizations, community centers, performing groups, museums, and individuals across Utah. In addition, the Division acts as a state coordinator and advisor on topics of importance to arts and museums communities. The Division also manages the state’s art assets for fine art, folk art, public art, and traveling exhibitions, reaching every county in the state.

Utah Arts & Museums is the primary agency in Utah that distributes state and federal funds to stimulate and encourage growth in the arts and creative industries. The funds are appropriated directly for arts and museums by both the Utah State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.

We are a division of the Department of Heritage and Arts (DHA), within the state government of Utah, responsible for the promotion of the arts and Utah museums. Our mission is to connect people and communities of Utah through Arts and Museums. We include the Utah Office of Museum Services and the Utah Arts Council. Our goals are to:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of the public value of arts and culture
  • Cultivate and formalize strategic partnerships
  • Foster education and lifelong participation in arts and culture
  • Nurture creativity and technological innovation in arts and culture
  • Invest in communities by strengthening the arts and cultural infrastructure
  • Improve access to opportunities and resources through efficient delivery of services
