Thread: Foyer Artwork

  1. #1

    Default Foyer Artwork

    The First Presidency decided that artwork of the Savior should be displayed in the foyers. All other distractions - display cases, bulletin boards, tables, and easels - need to be removed. They provided 22 pieces of artwork that are approved for display.

    Nothing by Jon McNaughton made the cut.

    Does this mean no more bulletin boards filled with advertising for EFY, Temple Square Concert Series, BYU Online Classes, Education Week, Women's Week, etc. that the bishop gets mailed to him all of the time and then sends the clerk to staple to a bulletin board in the hallway?

    Where does the hallway start and the foyer end?
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Maybe someday they'll bring back the only form of lobby decor I remember from my youth: an immense trophy case filled with all the swag received at many stake and regional tournaments.

    No McNaughton but a Liz Lemon Swindle with well-trimmed beard Jesus made the list.

    Those were great. We had a team that actually went to the All-Church Tournament.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    The focus of that picture is the child, NOT Jesus. Fail!

    All the other ones looked like they were representing a Jesus from one of the scriptural stories. I do not recall Jesus's ministry to Africa.

    As soon as you stop treating the Book of Mormon so lightly, maybe we'll finally get that book of scripture!

    Lots of people on this board don't seem to understand the distinction between a foyer and, say, the hallway where the Bishop's office is.

    Had to search a bit to find the approved paintings: https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist...tinghouses.pdf

    I would prefer to see more Carl Bloch and less Harry Anderson and Del Parsons

    To be fair, in some buildings there isn't a distinction. The bishop's office is practically across the foyer from the chapel doors.

    The Bishop's office in my building is in the foyer. Cool and sometimes weird layout in the building.

    I wish Jesus looked more Mediterranean ethnic in the pictures, instead of American Kenny Loggins.

    There’s probably tons of racist foyer artwork.
