Moving Pictures: C.C.A Christensen’s Mormon Panorama
<h3>June 4 – October 3, 2015</h3>
The BYU Museum of Art presents a historic saga of early Church history. C.C.A. Christensen’s 22 sweeping panoramas depict the miracles and persecutions between Joseph Smith’s First Vision to the pioneers’ entrance into the Salt Lake valley in 1847.
Hoping to inspire the rising generation of Latter-day Saints with the power of their religious heritage, Christensen utilized the popular moving panorama format to create a religiously affective experience that brought historical events to life for his contemporary audiences. Christensen s images were thoughtfully selected, rendered and presented to forge a powerful link between past and present: reinforcing faith and values that resonated with social, moral and political concerns of his own time.
