The mission of the Brigham City Museum of Art & History is to collect, preserve, and interpret art and materials which tell stories of human experiences and of the land.
The museum is a place to engage with ideas, creativity, and heritage.
The museum is home to a permanent exhibition on the history of Brigham City, and five to six temporary historical and fine art exhibitions a year. The outstanding collection covers more than 150 years of the history of Box Elder County with more than 10,000 objects. The growing art collection includes more than 300 pieces by outstanding artists including Florence Ware, David Howell Rosenbaum, E.J. Bird, J.T. Harwood, Mabel Frazer, Russell Case, and more.
When we first chose the theme "Changes" for this competition, we at the Brigham City Museum did not imagine the extent of change the world had in store. Even the exhibit itself had to experience change, as it was moved from its planned spring dates to the fall. We originally spoke of the cyclical nature of change, but now our thoughts center on the abrupt, transformative changes that shape our lives.
We are very much looking forward to hosting the Second Utah Designer Craft Artists competition this year and invite you to join us. The show will run from Saturday, November 21 through Saturday, January 16. Submissions are due Saturday, November 14 by 5:00 PM. Entry fee is $35 per artist, not per submission. Artists may submit up to three pieces. Follow our Facebook page for updates.
