The building of the Southern Utah Museum of Art by Brooks + Scarpa is underway, taking many natural influences of the surrounding area and incorporating it into the design.

The roof of the structure takes inspiration from the canyons around the location, which has a crevice-like section in the middle. The building will be used for activities such as theater, events and just bringing people together in general. What's even better is that there are also areas designated for studios for people to work and learn in, ensuring that the museum is helping in training budding artists of the surrounding area.

Right now the goal is to have the building done by 2016, and there is still much work to be done until that time.
