As of January 23, 2023, our agency will be housed in our new temporary location at 3760 South Highland Drive, Millcreek, UT 84106. Some of you might be interested in the plans for our new permanent location. We are receiving support from the Division of Facilities and Construction Management and the Governor’s Office as we analyze our space needs and move toward finding the perfect iconic home.
Here is the official statement from our boards concerning the move:
“Recognizing the historic role and impact that the Division of Arts & Museums has had on the cultural health of our state through programming and public gallery space, and understanding the high value that Utahns hold for the cultural sector when compared to other states across the country, the Utah Arts & Museums Advisory Boards heartily endorse a new, excellent location for Utah Arts & Museums that can consolidate staff locations (albeit not the new collections space) in a downtown Salt Lake City location. This location should provide easy access for gallery space and constituents and act as the embodiment of the values and mission of UA&M. The building should have a stature comparable to the Glendinning Home and be seen as an important resource and foundation for Utah’s museums, arts organizations, and cultural organizations.”
