Every year on President's Day weekend, Utah Tech University and the Sears Art Museum hosts it's prestigious Robert N. and Peggy Sears Invitational Art Show & Sale. We proudly showcase over 100 artists from all over the West and more than 200 traditional, contemporary, and sculptural pieces of artwork.

The art show was founded by Robert N. Sears, who passed away in May 1995. Sears, a retired vice president of Phillips Petroleum, worked tirelessly to establish a quality art invitational at the University which has become one of the most popular, well-attended exhibits in the state of Utah.
We're always amazed at the incredible artists who allow us to share their work in our museum for our yearly Invitational Art Show & Sale.
If you are not currently an Invitational artist but would like the chance to be in our 2024 Invitational, please submit an application to us by September 1st 2023.

  • 4 to 5 images of your art (4-10 MB) so we can build a power point for the Jurors.
**Please remember that artists are chosen by the Invitational Committee every year. Please send high quality photographs to represent you and your artwork. The Jurors are under the direction of Jeff Jarvis, Chairman of the Invitational and Dean for the College of the Arts. The Jurors usually meet at the end of October.**
