These 15 paintings comprise the very best of Jones’ work and were part of Jimmie’s gift to Southern Utah University, a gift which was the cornerstone of Southern Utah Museum of Art. Jones’ paintings of Zion and the Grand Canyon have given him the title of southern Utah’s premier landscape painter.
The Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA) is itself a work of art – a permanent sculpture that houses an art museum. This single story, 20,500 sq. ft. museum is organized into four components: the entry, five gallery spaces, administration offices & an education classroom, and the storage and support area.
