Mormon Women in Art: Where We’ve Been and Where We’re Going

Mormon art sometimes places women in submissive, peripheral, secondary roles. The explosion of art by Mormon women in the last decade has changed that. This session will address how social media has made space for women without traditional representation or financial backing to form successful careers in the arts. We will discuss how Mormon women of color are creating art that mixes their family culture with doctrine, creating results that look very different from what we typically see on our church building walls.
