Sacred Gifts Exhibit at the BYU Museum of Art
http://sacredgifts.byu.edu

A collection of religious paintings by Carl Bloch, Heinrich Hofman, and Frans Schwarz. These paintings have never been seen in one place before. They have been loaned to the BYU Museum of Art from cathedrals all over Europe. The exhibit took 12 years of planning and preparation, and those who loaned the paintings say that they do not believe this type of a loan or combined exhibit will ever happen again.

Admission to see the exhibit is FREE. Simply reserve your tickets online. HMQS falls on the last weekend of the exhibit, so you should plan to reserve your ticket now – it’s filling up! Also, be sure to download the free app onto your iPad, or simply rent an iPad and headphones there (just $3), as the videos and tour information will greatly enhance your experience. The exhibit takes 1-2 hours to view.
