The museum exhibits contemporary folk art made by Utah artists. The work represents American Indian tribes, rural, occupational and ethnic groups. The building was built more than 150 years ago in traditional hall-and-parlor style from adobe bricks and is a fine example of 19th century folk art.
Four galleries contain contemporary folk art. Objects include but are not limited to Navajo baskets, a Shoshone beaded purse, a hand-tooled saddle, Japanese temari balls, a Polynesian quilt, Peruvian retablos, and Belgium lace, Tibetan rugs, Mexican paper flowers, and Chinese paper cuts.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
