Board members and participants capture behind-the-scenes activities of the Mormon Arts Center in frequent posts.

More Great Press

In a Church News article over the weekend that highlighted events of the Mormon Arts Center Festival, staff writer Morgan Jones described some exciting elements of our June event. Although it happened far away from Salt Lake City, the Center has been very fortunate to attract the attention of media outlets in Utah, including the Salt Lake Tribune, the Deseret News, Church News, and KSL-TV. 

It's always interesting to me to read what interests other people. In this most recent article, the author latched onto the story of James W. McConkie, the brother of apostle Bruce R. McConkie. The former's tragic death and extraordinary rediscovery is something that the Center is proud to have been a part of.  Other things that appealed to her were the global nature of the festival's participants. 

One of the Center's goals is to broaden our understanding of what is going on worldwide in our culture, regarding the arts. We feel like we can be a resource to shine a light on people and ideas that others might have missed.
