About the Exhibit
Since the mid-1970s, President Henry B. Eyring has produced hundreds of small-scale watercolor paintings that, like his journals, capture his feelings and memories about important moments and people in his life.
This exhibition of his work, originally organized by Brigham Young University—Idaho Spori Gallery in 2017, hopes to communicate President Eyring’s deep love and tender nostalgia for his family, his friends, and the important places that encompass their shared memories, and to encourage viewers to find, communicate, remember, and share their own most powerful experiences of love.
A Visual Journal: Artwork of Henry B. Eyring will be open at the Church History Museum from November 8, 2018 to February 9, 2019.
