More than 130 rarely seen masterworks by Utah artist LeConte Stewart are featured in this exhibit at the Church History Museum. Stewart’s works capture the spirit and beauty of Utah’s deserts, mountains, and agricultural scenes—the soul of Utah’s rural landscape.
Concurrent with the exhibit at the Church History Museum, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts presents LeConte Stewart: Depression Era Art. This exhibit explores the stark economic upheaval that Stewart captured in his rural and urban paintings created during the Great Depression.
Together, the two exhibits present the largest display of LeConte Stewart paintings and works on paper ever mounted—an important celebration of his life’s work. The exhibits will be on display in the Church History Museum and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts from July 21, 2011 through January 15, 2012.
