Springville is just south of Provo. It has been known as the "Art City" since the 1930s when the Springville Museum of Art was built. "The Museum houses the finest collection of Utah fine art, a significant collection of twentieth century American realism and Soviet Socialist Realism from the 1930's to the 1970's." (See above link.)

To augment the many indoor sculptures in the museum's collection, an outdoor sculpture garden began to be developed on the surrounding grounds during the 1980s. Since then the "garden" has spread to include most of downtown Springville. The outdoor collection now includes more than three dozen works by Utah artists and others. Some of them are shown below with the title of the work, name of the artist, and location. The photos (except the first and last ones) are 'thumbnails' which are links to a larger photo. Just click on the thumbnail to see the larger photo.

Note: Sculptures are located at many sites throughout the 'Art City.' For a complete listing and map, you may email or visit the Museum.
