Back Porch Garden Panorama
Back Porch Garden presents an 1890 view of the Salt Lake Temple and the famous gardens of the Beehive House, as well as the Lion House. This painting envisions the view Brigham Young would have had from his back porch upon the temple’s completion.
Oquirrh Mountain Temple
Dedicated on August 21, 2009, the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple is the 130th operating LDS temple in the world and the fourth temple in the Salt Lake Valley. It is a beautiful, modern structure, but this painting depicts how it is surrounded by and thereby dependent on the pioneer heritage that developed the land.
"Our Legacy" presents a view of the Beehive House looking west, with the former Church Historian’s office in the foreground. This piece derives its name from the legacy of womanhood, patriotism, and pioneer sacrifice shared by the early settlers of the Salt Lake Valley.
Standing as silent evidence of religious devotion, the Provo Tabernacle embodies the deep and abiding faith that the pioneer Saints felt for Jesus Christ and his gospel. The Provo Tabernacle was originally constructed from 1883 to 1898 at a cost of $100,000. The building has octagonal towers at each of its four corners.
