St. George Temple Murals Inspection


I’ve been asked to inspect the St. George Temple murals this next Monday for condition and mural restoration issues. So, at this point there isn’t much to say other than their condition and the potential art conservation treatments are being taken into consideration for a future intervention. I’ll report back in after the examination.

As some of you know, the St. George Temple was the first temple completed by the early pioneers after their arrival from Nauvoo.

If you like hearing about the inside information on LDS art of a historical nature, its preservation, my adventures with the History Dept and looking back into the historical artistic testimonials of faith, sign up for updates in the sidebar and share these posts with other likeminded folk.
