Construction is moving along at the UVU Museum of Art’s future home at Lakemount Manor! If you live in the immediate neighborhood, you may experience noise as we begin work on the estate’s grounds and some minor impacts to local traffic as equipment and supplies are moved onto the site. This work is expected to continue over the next several months. We appreciate your support during construction, and look forward to welcoming you when the museum opens this year.




The UVU Museum of Art (formerly Woodbury Art Museum) is a dynamic institution recognized for engaged and diverse exhibitions, programs and partnerships. Since the museum’s founding in 2002, it has been an important place for the stewardship of art and education in the community.

Looking to the future, we cannot imagine a more fitting home for the UVU Museum of Art than the estate of Melanie Bastian, generously gifted to Utah Valley University by the Bastian family, who continue building on a long history of supporting the university. Known as Lakemount Manor, the estate has always served as a community gathering place. As a museum, the space will continue to provide a valuable resource to Utah County and the local community by offering unique and innovative programs and exhibitions that cultivate community appreciation for the arts. The museum will also offer expanded opportunities for UVU students to participate in interdisciplinary arts learning opportunities through courses, internships, and expanded programming.

We look forward to sharing our new home as Melanie did, with neighbors, campus and community. Until then, explore our current virtual exhibitions and online art education programming:
