What is Available From the Approved List?

The Church has an approved list of artwork for meetinghouses and other buildings. They are currently working on some commissions from LDS artists to include more diverse representation of the Savior and other figures. These pieces are set to be released in the near future. Until then, here are some pieces currently available on the approved list that could be good suggestions now to recommend to local leaders. Keep in mind that there are specific pieces approved for foyers vs. other areas. We will try to keep things updated as changes are made.

Master of Ocean, Earth & Skies by Rose Datoc Dall
Greatest in the Kingdom by J. Kirk Richards
Living Waters by Rose Datoc Dall

Contacting the Church directly

The Church currently has an email address set up as a way for members to make suggestions: Keep in mind the importance of requesting that the Savior Himself be represented accurately as a person of color. Also keep in mind that if the artist you are suggesting is white to consider if that artist is using their place of privilege to shine light on artists of color and are not just benefiting from the movement. We want to encourage a thoughtful look at how this work can uplift and provide exposure for artists of color. Please encourage people you know to also make suggestions that are accurately representing the Savior as He is. We want to normalize seeing Him and hearing Him and representing Him in power and glory as a person of color.
