Look to the Utah Skies

Summer Storm Sunset, Kolob by Arlene Braithwaite

This spring, Southern Utah Museum of Art celebrates Utah skies through its annual Art Auction fundraiser. Emceed once again by the one-and-only Michael Bahr, Interim Director of the Utah Shakespeare Festival, this casual event will feature live music by 3hattrio, delicious dinner options, and an edge-of-your-seat live auction with local auctioneer Dave Cox. Get ready to bid on a variety of the finest art from around the region, including the showpiece created just for this event from our featured artist Arlene Braithwaite!

Proceeds will support the museum's general operating fund to ensure the museum continues to bring high-quality artwork to southern Utah, not only in 2023, but in years to come. Join us for a fun and engaging event while supporting the museum!
