About Us

The Juab Fine Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Mission Statement:

The purpose of the Juab Fine Arts Council (JFAC) is to promote cultural growth and experiences in Juab County through all forms of fine art; we will do this by assisting artists, arts organizations, and groups (i.e., schools) with arts-oriented projects and events and through the JFAC Internet Website.

Fine Arts is defined as purity of the discipline of visual & performing arts (i.e., music, painting, sculpture, dance, theater, architecture, literature, crafts, textiles, photography, etc).

A Brief History

JFAC was established in 2001 by three dedicated women: Chelom Leavitt, Tana Esplin, and Joye Cannell. The quality performers and entertainers who have performed through JFAC in Nephi include Michael McLean, BYU Ballroom Dancers, Jericho Road, The Young Ambassadors, Voice Male, The BYU Folk Dancers, Missoula Children’s Theater, and musicians from the Utah Symphony.



The Juab Fine Arts Council is funded by grants through the Utah Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Fund-raising events like Art in the Park, concession sales at events, etc., as well as business and individual contributions. We also accept your gracious donations.  Paypal donations can be made by clicking the “Donate” button to the right.
