    Church Museum Announces Competition

    The Museum of Church History and Art is inviting LDS artists to create original works for the Third International Art Competition.

    Museum officials said art for the 1994 competition must reflect a theme, value, activity, or image drawn from Latter-day Saint life. The theme for the competition will be “Living the Gospel in the World Church.”

    Artists are encouraged to depict themes related to the way Latter-day Saints express religious standards in their lives as individuals, as families, and in other relationships and activities.

    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 84 inches in the longest dimension.

    For the first round of jurying, slides or photographs of the original work, accompanied by an entry form, will be due on 30 November 1993. A final jurying of accepted works will identify pieces for an exhibit at the museum. Prizes for meritorious work and purchases for the museum collection will be announced at the exhibit, which will open in March 1994.

    Artists who entered the 1991 competition will automatically receive an information sheet and entry form by mail. Others may request information from the Museum of Church History and Art, 45 North West Temple Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84150, phone (801) 240-4615.
