How Can You Support SUMA? 

Al Farrow: Wrath & Reverence, 2019

Like many organizations, 2020 has not played out as planned, but we have much to be grateful for here at Southern Utah Museum of Art. I want to thank you for your past support of the museum. Since we opened in 2016, I hope that you have enjoyed the many exhibitions and programs which your contributions directly impact. Your generosity has allowed the museum to remain free and open to the public, so that you and many other visitors can participate in our remarkable educational and cultural offerings. Did you know that SUMA had more than 33,000 visitors in 2019?

With your support, SUMA will continue to present regional, national and international artists to our community such as 2019’s Al Farrow: Wrath and Reverence or this past summer’s Find the Distance: A Jimmie F. Jones Retrospective. In addition, your support means sustaining a place of inspiration, creativity, and learning for people of all ages including families, students, and community members. 

Despite challenging times, SUMA staff quickly adapted on-site programs to continue virtually. In May, 5,000 art kits were distributed to K-12 students in collaboration with Iron County School District. We remain committed to providing meaningful programs that foster engagement and experiential learning for our campus and community. Our focus is to ensure arts engagement remains accessible during this time because now, more than ever, our community needs its art museum. Thank you for your belief in our mission and your continuing support of the arts in our community.
