Featured Exhibit

Joseph Harry Anderson (1906–1996) began his first commission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints in 1963, toward the end of his long artistic career. His work for the LDS church includes nearly 30 paintings that have become iconic Latter-day Saint images.

This exhibit features 25 preliminary sketches (paint studies) created by Anderson as preparatory work for his finished paintings. These studies shed new light and perspective on Anderson’s work and on the familiar and beloved scenes he painted from Christ’s life. The gallery exhibit runs through April 2017 and is accompanied by a permanent online exhibit featuring images and details of all of the same artwork on display at the museum
