    Laura Paulsen Howe | "Flood the World with the Beautiful and Good"


    What is the role of art in our worship, and how does it shape and reflect our faith? Church History Museum art curator Laura Paulsen Howe introduces listeners to Alice Merrill Horne, an early champion of arts in the Church and leader in the Relief Society, as well as a mother, legislator, and educator. We discuss the importance of art in our homes, places of worship, and communities, and learn more about the Church’s efforts to gather inclusive and diverse art from members around the world through the International Art Competition.
