Southern Utah Museum of Art is one of the newest buildings to Cedar City! Located just east of Southern Utah University, this modern building is sure to catch your eye. We’ve been meaning to go to this FREE museum for a while and our Staycation made it happen! 

Staying downtown at the El Rey Inn, made it a quick five-minute walk to the SUMA building.

It was pretty fun walking through the Shakespeare Festival buildings and statue gardens. The gardens and buildings are empty now, but come Shakespeare Festival time there are TONS of people. 

Stephanie stayed back at the El Rey Inn while the babies napped so my husband (the art major) and I walked with the older kids to the museum. 

The architecture of the building itself is pretty cool. 

Luckily, the art exhibits had just been changed to the senior projects of the SUU Art students plus some local artists. Many of the artists were so different from each other, we loved seeing all the varying concepts and mediums. 

My husband’s favorite local Cedar City artist is Jimmy Jones. (Somehow I didn't capture a photo.) It was my first time viewing his art and I totally wish we could buy some of his art.

I’ll admit, it was nice not having tiny kids running around. Don't get me wrong, I saw plenty of younger children at the Museum, but it was kind of nice not to have to worry about tiny legs running. 

Stephanie's kids are older and appreciate the art a little bit more than our young kids. 

It’s the perfect place to stop for a few quiet moments and enjoy the arts.
