Arts to Zion sponsors local artists, art galleries, and programs that promote art in the community. The annual Arts and Studio Tour allows the public access to many studios normally unavailable and is a major fund raiser that supports local artists. This event is free and usually held the third weekend in September. Arts to Zion also supports the Silver Reef Museum that preserves the story of the silver mining industry that played  a pivotal role in the development of southern Utah in the late 1880s.
