The Arts in Moab

Something for Every Art Lover


What kind of artists inspire you? What kind of art catches your eye? In Moab you will find a vast variety of art and artists. From landscape painting and photography to jank art (sculptures made from desert finds), there is something here for the art lover in you! The red rocks, Colorado River and outdoor lifestyle provide the ideal environment for art to flourish.

The Moab Arts Council is “your one-stop for the arts in Moab.” Visit their website www.moabartscouncil.org to view a list of services and activities. The Moab Arts Council’s mission is to promote and support the arts in Southeastern Utah. They act as an arts advocacy, leadership and granting organization. This is done with the belief and understanding that arts activities, events and education provide for general community well-being while contributing to economic diversity. Ultimately they see the growth of the arts in all directions as simply making Moab a better place to be for residents and visitors alike.

Moab Arts and Recreation Center

Since its formation in 1997, the Moab Arts & Recreation Center (MARC) has become a place where community is built. The renovated church, constructed in 1925, sat vacant for two years before volunteers brought the building and the idea of an arts center to life. Today the MARC (111 East 100 North) is a center for art classes and workshops, special events & cultural offerings.

  • Ongoing Classes and Seasonal Workshops
  • Special Events and Cultural Offerings – The MARC regularly hosts special events such as the Youth Garden Project’s Chocolate Lovers Fling, Moab Repertory Theatre productions, The Holiday Craft Fair, monthly Art Walk exhibits and much more.
