Treasures from the MOA Collection
There are over 18,000 objects in the BYU Museum of Art collection and the MOA is excited to showcase the favorites in a new exhibition, Treasures from the Collection, opening in 2020. This compelling exhibition unveils a variety of staff and visitor favorites, all curated from the MOA’s permanent collection.
When the BYU Museum of Art was dedicated in 1993, Gordon B. Hinckley of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called it a “treasure house” of art that will “nourish our finer instincts and cause us to more frequently ponder on the wonder of…our Creator.”
The MOA was completed in 1993, as a space dedicated to the preservation of a university art collection, as well as a venue to feature world-class artwork of various styles and themes. To showcase this collection, the MOA presents Treasures from the Collection.
In conjunction with the exhibition, the MOA has created a mobile tour of the exhibition on the new BYU Museum of Art app. This self-guided tour of the exhibition through the app is complete with behind-the scenes stories, artist biographies, and audio narration. The app content provides an inside look at the exhibition for both in-person visitors and those exploring the exhibition from home. Download here for iOS and here for Android.
