SALT LAKE CITY — During the pandemic, leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints requested a new vision for the foyers or entryways of church meetinghouses — the art to reflect a deeper reverence for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Many church buildings have new artwork, others are in the process of change. A diverse group of Latter-day Saint artists is creating images that reflect the cultural and racial "peoples of the world."

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the church's art collection and how copies of those works are made and sent worldwide. Members of the Primary general presidency have chosen art for their offices – why they find those images sacred and why it is important that Latter-day Saint children experience art that moves them too. And finally, The Center for Latter-day Saint Arts in New York City. See the diversity of sacred art in an exhibit titled "Great Awakening."
