2020 Utah Design Crafts Artists Competition
In 2019, the Brigham City Museum of Art & History launched a joint competition and exhibition to honor the 60th anniversary of the Utah Designer Craft Alliance. Artists of all ages and skill levels entered the competition while works from previous UDCA members and from the Museum’s permanent collection completed the exhibition. We received a wellspring of support from past UDCA members who were pleased to see its legacy highlighted in this exhibition and hoped the Museum would produce many more.
“If you can change your perception, you can change your emotion, and this can lead to new ideas.”

"Evolving Perceptions" is a cutting edge exhibit that will stretch the imagination of the viewer and display a mix of new and traditional art quilt techniques.
The 2020 Photography Competition at the Brigham City Museum of Art & History will run from September 12 - November 14, 2020.
This year's theme is Changes.
The Brigham City Museum of Art & History invites you to marvel at its latest exhibition, “Contemporary Illustration”, which will run from September 7 through November 16. From whimsy to gritty, this exhibition is nothing like any other previously seen at the museum.
The exhibition features Eisner winning artists Jill Thompson and Gene Ha, industry giant Sal Velluto, visionaries Jon Wasson, Chuck Pyle, and Patric Reynolds, and local favorites Ned Young and Mark Meyers.
