What is Art in Action?

For the first time ever, SUMA is hosting Art in Action, a fundraiser where visitors can purchase donated artwork to support student scholarships for SUU's Art & Design department. Art in Action takes place Monday, March 22 through Friday, April 9. All work in Art in Action is available to be purchased for the flat price of $20.

What kind of Artwork will be available to purchase?

The Art in Action exhibition features a variety of donated two and three-dimensional works from students, faculty, and staff of Southern Utah University. Many mediums will be present including but not limited to watercolor, paintings on canvas, three-dimensional works, photographs, etc. All donated works will be sized less than 15”x15”

What does the artwork cost?

All Art in Action works, no matter the medium or size, are available to visitors for purchasing at the flat price of $20. (For those who choose to have the work shipped rather than picked up at the museum, an additional fee for shipping will be applied.)

How do I purchase artwork?

Artwork from the exhibition Art in Action is available for purchase online or at the museum front desk from Monday, March 22 through Friday, April 9th.

If you are in the gallery and see a work of art you like, we encourage you to promptly visit our website, where you can immediately claim the piece you want. You may also visit the SUMA front desk and let our Museum staff know which work of art you would like to buy.

Please note, our Museum Associates will frequently update artwork purchased with a SOLD symbol, but there is still a chance that work you are interested in has already been bought online. Checking the availability of artwork online will provide you with the most updated availability of artwork.

When can I pick up artwork I buy?

Purchased work will not be available for pick up until the exhibition is taken down. You may pick up purchased work beginning Monday, April 12th thru Saturday, April 17th during museum hours. You must have proof of purchase (receipt) and an ID to claim your purchase.
