Utah Arts Go Online

Experience the UMFA online

The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is scheduled to be closed through Friday, May 8 (though dates could change at any time). Below are some virtual art experiences the museum is offering that may interest you in the meantime:
  • UMFA at Home https://umfa.utah.edu/museum-at-home is a new online portal launched in late March. Here, art lovers will find behind-the-scenes stories from museum curators and staff, hands-on art activities for children and adults, and learning resources for teachers and parents. UMFA curators, educators, and communicators continue to create and add new content to the website weekly, usually on Fridays.
  • Beginning this Friday, April 3, the Holt/Smithson Foundation is offering Fridays at the movies, presenting a moving image work by artists Nancy Holt and/or Robert Smithson on Vimeo between 3 pm and 11 pm mountain time. Here’s the link: https://vimeo.com/176833539 (currently password-protected but will be made public every Friday between 3 pm and 11 pm.) Friday, April 3, the foundation is presenting Nancy HoltUtah Sequences (1970), which is currently on loan to the UMFA and was on view in our modern and contemporary gallery before we closed. (Utah Sequences is currently scheduled to be on view at the UMFA through August 2.)
  • On Friday, April 3, the museum will post to their exhibition page an online gallery of more images and wall texts from Seven Masters: 20th-Century Japanese Woodblock Prints, which is scheduled to close April 26. (Beyond the Divide: Merchant, Artist, Samurai in Edo Japan is currently scheduled to close Sunday, July 5.)
