Adult Programs

Our friends and neighbors in Iron County are a vital part of what makes the Southern Utah Museum of Art a cultural center in our community. The mission of the Learning and Experiences team is to champion participation in the arts through participatory learning and experiences for people of all ages. Adults in our community are invited to experience SUMA through programs like Art Adventures, Lunch and Learn, Melody in the Museum, and the Art Insights lecture series.
