Museum Seeks Children’s Artwork

The Museum of Church History and Art is seeking children’s artwork on the theme of the family for an exhibit in October of this year.

“The purpose of the exhibit is to encourage children to use their creativity to show what is important about their families,” explained Jennifer Lund, associate museum educator and organizer of the exhibit. “We hope to see all kinds of families doing what is important to them.”

Children between ages five and eleven are invited to participate in the exhibit. They can use crayon, pencil, watercolor, charcoal, oil, collage, or other art mediums on paper.

The submissions should not be larger than eleven inches by fourteen inches and should have the artist’s name, age, address, ward or branch, and stake or district clearly indicated on the back.

Approximately three hundred submissions will be selected for display in the exhibit, which will open 9 October 1992 and run through 7 February 1993. Submissions will not be returned to the participants.

Submission deadline is August 7, and pieces should be mailed to the Museum of Church History and Art, 45 North West Temple Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84150.
