We are continuing our popular Third Saturday for Families program every month during our temporary closure. These family activity days will take place at the nearby Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts & Education Complex auditorium (Room 1151).
We have partnered with the Salt Lake City Public Library to offer our Spiral Jetty backpack available for families to check out for FREE at the Children's desk downtown. Enjoy a family outing to Spiral Jetty and learn about the history, art, and science around this amazing artwork. New family backpacks are being designed to highlight the reimagined installation of the UMFA permanent galleries when we reopen in spring 2017.
The Traveling Museum Project installs exhibitions in schools throughout the state of Utah using objects from the Utah Museum of Fine Arts' Education Collection. This object centered, inquiry-based program explores the role that art plays in people's lives across the globe. The goals of the program are to assist in the development of visual literacy, foster independent learning, and cultivate critical thinking, creativity, and curiosity.
