One of the most beloved Latter-day Saint artists of our time, Brian Kershisnik combines the holy with the whimsical and the familiar with the transcendent. Over the course of decades his art has captured the hearts and inspired viewers around the world.

This new exhibition, a mid-career retrospective, will feature over 100 artworks highlighting his exploration of love, grief, service, loss, inspiration, contemplation, and eternity. We invite you to witness the majesty and wonder of his artistry depicting everyday people on their journeys as heirs of immortal glory.

We are grateful to countless private collectors who will be sharing the artist's paintings, prints, drawings, and sculpture with our visitors, and we thank the artist for sharing 30 years of works with the Museum, including new, never-before-seen works made specially for this exhibition.
