The Provo Art Board was founded in 1956 by B.F. Larsen, BYU Professor and well known artist.
Monthly exhibits by Utah artists were originally hung in the Provo Utilities Building on 800 North, Provo. Around 1993 the exhibits were moved to the historic Utah County Court House, Center Street and University Avenue. The Board then became known as the Utah County Art Board, and monthly exhibits were hung there until the new Health and Justice Building was built at 151 S. University Avenue in Provo, where our exhibits, shows, and receptions are now held.
The Utah County Arts Board, Inc. is a volunteer organization, funded in part by Utah County. The Board works in cooperation with various artists, art groups, and venues. Utah County Arts Board, Inc is a member of the Provo First Friday's Downtown Art Stroll.
