Heritage Arts Foundation – Who We Are

The Heritage Arts Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation organized with one of its goals being to help bring to the ­­Great State of Utah, the awareness that some of the world’s highest quality and caliber artwork is created and produced here within the borders of this Great State. Another goal is to bring to the citizens of Utah, the exposure to the rich heritage of the fine visual arts we have in the United States, which has lead the world’s art scene since almost the formation of our great nation. While this organization works with all the fine arts, the primary focus is on advocating for increasing the implementation of sculpture for public and corporate placement.

It was founded in 2003 with the primary vision to build a sculpture park in Alpine Utah. During its life, it has provided for art classes, performing art concerts, presentations, and the fundraising for key sculpture projects which have placed sculptures in public places all over Utah.

The Foundation’s Current Governing Board is Chaired by Brian L. Streadbeck, with Gary E. Streadbeck Serving as the President, and Wendy and Mary Kay Streadbeck serving as Trustees.


We look forward to continuing our mission by building a sculpture park as well as other projects throughout the State.
