About



Design is the creative beginning of any human-initiated arrangement of materials. We are dedicated to the promotion of excellence in the diverse fields of design in Utah. We strive to help community members see, experience, utilize and value the art of design that surrounds us. Yearly we sponsor a juried exhibition of some of Utah's best designers' work.


The results are in! Mr. Prosky reviewed 86 designs by 45 Utah designers and has selected 25 designs from 18 designers to be featured in DesignArt Utah '22! June 24 through September 16, 2022.

THE DESIGNARTS UTAH '22 EXHIBIT OPENS JUNE 24, 2022.
UTAH MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART - SALT LAKE CITY

The diverse range of design practice selected is creating a dynamic exhibition of some of the best of Utah's designs and designers.
