The Brigham City Museum of Art & History is pleased to announce the winners of its 2021 Plein Air Competition, a partnering program with the Utah Department of Heritage and Arts THRIVE125: Celebrating Utah’s Statehood campaign.
The Brigham City Museum of Art & History is delighted to honor the winners for its 2020 Utah Design Crafts Artist Competition on Thursday, December 3 at 6:00 PM during a virtual awards ceremony broadcasted via Facebook Live. Amy Schmidt's A Ring for a New Now took first place, followed by Janimarie Lester DeRose's California Ashes Urn in second place, and Diane Whittaker's The Hunt taking third place.
Join us for a peak inside Betsy Cannon's artistic process.
Betsy Cannon's "Baba Yaga's House: On the Prowl", featured in "Evolving Perceptions" Art Quilts by members of the Studio Art Quilt Associates Colorado/Utah/Wyoming Region, is a crowd favorite and we get a lot of questions about Baba Yaga. This artist talk delves into Betsy's approach to storytelling through art quilts and answers questions about her techniques.
About Betsy Cannon:
Join us for a virtual panel discussion on "Evolving Perceptions" Art Quilts by members of the Studio Art Quilt Associates Colorado/Utah/Wyoming Region with Margaret Abramshe, Deborah Boschert, Judy Duffield, and Sue Lewis.
This is a Facebook Live event and will be broadcast on the Brigham City Museum of Art & History Facebook page. Click here to RSVP and access the event.

Join us for an opening reception and awards ceremony for "The Handmade Object". This special competition and exhibition celebrates the legacy of Utah Designer Craft Alliance. Artists employed fiber, wood, glass, clay, metal, stone, or any mix of these media to create their entries.
Light refreshments will be served.
Admission Is Free
It's a Gallery Talk & Reception at the Brigham City Museum of Art & History! Join us on Saturday, October 26 from 2:00 to4:00 PM as we welcome Jon Wassom, a featured artist in our current exhibition "Contemporary Illustration".
Jon Wassom's art reflects his love affair with art and texture. His paintings are shallow color sculptures full of intuitive mark making. Each piece represents his abstract response to his perception of the natural world, the man-made world, and the cosmos.
Come explore the museum at night! For a special treat, we'll be open from 6-8pm on Monday, June 3rd. Bring a date or bring the family and enjoy this unique opportunity to come to the museum.
Few of the photos of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad include many women, and sometimes it's hard to envision what people of the past wore.
The evening will include fashion show with costumes from the 18th century through the early 20th century.
The event is free and held in conjunction with "The Spike at 150: Myths and Realities."
Have you always wanted to dance like it's 1869? Now's your chance! Old Glory Vintage Dancers will be here to teach you how to dance, and will give demonstrations. Dress up if you like, and join us at this free event held in conjunction with "The Spike at 150: Myths and Realities."
The exhibition and related programming have been made possible by the Utah Department of Heritage and Arts, Spike 150, and the Box Elder County Tourism Tax Advisory Board Golden Spike Sesquicentennial Grant.
Join us for two new walking tours exploring the history of Brigham City, and some of the wonderful historical architecture tucked in our town.
