Cedar City Art showcases art exhibitions within various city-owned buildings, visually enhancing the community’s public spaces with art. Gallery spaces will not sell artwork; however, artists can list contact information for interested buyers. Gallery spaces will not take a commission from any sales.

Depending on the gallery space, artists can expect to have their work displayed from one to three months. All artwork must be original, and proposals will be accepted from single artists, groups of artists or organizations. There is no fee to apply.
