Salon 100 will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Spring Salon and share its impact and history! The Salon was started by Springville High School students in the 1920s. They hung the first shows in the halls of their high school until they were so well known for their art, the Springville community built them a museum! Our historic commemoration will celebrate these students and imagine the future of the Salon through exhibitions, a documentary film, publications, and special programs and lectures. 

Salon 100: A Retrospective of 100 Spring Salons and the Students that Built Art City!

Apr 27, 2024  – July 6, 2024

The Spring Salon was first held in 1922, by students and teachers of Springville High School who wanted to exhibit and promote original artwork. The Salon has been held annually since that time, except during World War II when fuel and other goods were rationed nationwide. The Springville Museum of Art continues the tradition today and invites all artists in Utah to participate in the 100th Annual Spring Salon. This exhibition is a juried competition that showcases the diversity and quality of contemporary Utah art. 

This year celebrates the 100th anniversary of this exhibition!

100th Annual Spring Salon

January 18, 2024- August 3, 2024

This exhibition explores the connections between lineage, community, and the environment. Whether actively or passively, we each inherit bloodlines, culture, and land. The passage of time reveals the impact of this inheritance. We see it in our bodies, the ways we interact with nature, and what we choose to pass on to future generations.In 2019, a group of multi-disciplinary artists met in Iceland for a collaborative and creative experience. During this gathering, the artists explored the idea of inheritance in conversation, music, and art-making. The artworks in this exhibition are the result of the artists’ interactions and collaborations during that experience.

In the art institutes of the Soviet Union, artists were influenced by traditional academic curriculum, styles from previous movements like Realism, Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism, and their own lived and varied experiences. Encouraged to use this depth of training and experience, the artists pushed each other to not rely on past themes, but find new subject matter and a new perceptions of reality.
