The Utah Visual Art Program facilitates the Statewide Annual juried exhibition, awards two visual art fellowships annually, accepts exhibition proposals from professional and emerging Utah artists, and continues to collect art for the State of Utah Fine Art Collection. Additionally, we have public art, design art, and traveling exhibition programs, and a variety of partnership programs and professional development services for artists. For more information visit

In 1899 the Utah legislature established the first state funded arts council in the nation. The purpose was to advance the interest of visual arts, to develop the influence of art in education, to sponsor an annual art exhibition, establish a state art collection and present public lectures on art.
