Church Museum Announces Art Competition

The Museum of Church History and Art is inviting Latter-day Saint artists to create original works of art for the Third International Art Competition in 1994.

The theme for the competition will be “Living the Gospel in the World Church.” The art must reflect a theme, value, activity, or image drawn from Latter-day Saint life. The museum hopes to encourage artists to depict themes related to the way Church members express the gospel in their lives as individuals and families and in other relationships as Latter-day Saints.

Entries will be accepted in all artistic media, including paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, needlework, and other arts and crafts. Original works may not exceed eighty-four inches in their largest dimension.

For the first-round jurying, slides or photographs of the original work will be due at the museum on 30 November 1993 together with an entry form. All artists who participated in the last competition will receive information by mail. Others may request an information sheet and entry form by writing to Museum of Church History and Art, 45 North West Temple Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84150, or by calling 801-240-4615.

A final jurying of accepted works will select pieces to be included in an exhibit at the museum. Prizes for meritorious work and purchases for the museum collection will be announced at the exhibit opening in March 1994.
