The mission of the Museum of Utah Art & History is to foster among people an awareness of, and excitement about, Utah art and its history so that they may draw significance and perspective from the past and find purpose for the future.
This mission is carried out by:
- Providing opportunities for people of all ages to learn about and explore the art and history of Utah
- Making known and accessible to people in Utah and beyond, through all means possible: painting, sculpture and other pieces of art as well as historical objects and artifacts that document human life in Utah
- Providing a venue where the State of Utah may display its various art collections and historical artifacts, and to provide increased public access to state archives
- promoting an engaging venue where Utah children can become more knowledgeable, curious and enthusiastic about their heritage while fulfilling Utah State Office of Education core curricula requirements
- Encouraging public, institutional, and private collaboration with MUAH to promote mutually beneficial exhibits and programming
