We were on the SUU campus for the Shakespeare festival. Between plays we visited the gallery. It's a lovely space and has great potential. I hope they will eventually expand to include 3-D art (the only works were paintings), and beef up the offerings in...More

The outside of the building has an amazing shape but the whiteness was a bit off-putting at first. The interior is just gorgeous. The space is welcoming and warm while the staff is always eager to talk about the various exhibits. The current exhibit about...More

Thank you, Kathleen, for such a wonderful review! A fun fact about the museum's architecture is the exterior was designed to mimic the Utah Slot Canyons, bringing a sense of the natural beauty of the National Parks that surround Cedar City into the community. We...More

This student-run museum is a must for folks who love the outdoors as it offers a large collection of Jimmie Jones paintings as well as rotating exhibits that focus on the beauty of the Colorado plateau. Best of all -- there's no admission charge!More

Really enjoyed the current show. The national park theme was a good pick and the variety in styles made it very interesting. Even the student section was a good mix. The space is laid out nicely and the building itself is a visual show.
