Brigham Young University (BYU) Museum of Art Events in Provo Utah 2024

By Katerina Gasset

As a Provo local, I've always been captivated by the Brigham Young University Museum of Art, a gem that's not just free but a haven of tranquility and inspiration.

What truly sets it apart for me, beyond its serene ambiance, is the vibrant tapestry of events it hosts. These gatherings are not mere events; they're a celebration of art, culture, and community that continually renew my appreciation for the creative spirit.

Each visit is a unique journey through the rich world of art, making the BYU Museum of Art an unforgettable part of my Provo experience.


Brigham Young University Museum of Art: History and Architecture

The Brigham Young University Museum of Art, a beacon of cultural and artistic excellence, is one of the largest and most attended art museums in the Mountain West.

Mahoni Mackintosh Young was one of Brigham Young’s grandsons. Mahonri donated his own artwork to the BYU. His generosity was contagious. Other artists began donating their artwork as well. The art collection grew and grew. Soon there was not enough space to display it all!

That’s when the idea for the BYU Museum of Art was born. 

Since its inauguration in 1993, the museum has been a space where art and education converge, nestled in the heart of BYU's scenic campus in Provo.

Designed by Los Angeles architect James Langenheim with contributions from the Smithsonian Institution, the Getty Museum, and the National Gallery of Art, the BYU Museum of Art now stands as a grandiose structure as world-class as the art pieces it houses.

The building is a masterpiece, blending modern aesthetics with a functionality that enhances the viewer's experience. Its expansive galleries house a diverse collection ranging from classical to contemporary art, offering visitors a rich tapestry of human expression and creativity through the ages.

Here's my blog post about the tours I did at the BYU Museum of Art: Brigham Young University Museum of Art in Provo. From the best exhibits to what to order on their famous MOA Cafe, I got them all covered!

About the author of Move to Provo Utah Website 

Katerina Gasset

When I moved here I was blessed to have my daughter to help with different things you need to know when you move to a new place. I had background from living here before but things have changed a lot too since the '80s. 

We were able to get all the good places to eat down fast - since she knows all that and we have a lot of the same likes in food. But things like how to turn on my electricity or what power company services my home... well... I was at a total loss! 

I know that other people moving to Provo don't always have family here to guide and help them. And most people don't have a real estate agent who gives them a welcome package on all the important numbers and places they need to know. 

My goal is for this website to be your go to resource for everything you need to know before, during, and after you move here to Provo, Utah. I want you to have the best experience and love living here as much as I do
