The Nelda C. and H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation of Orange, Texas, will present 11 mural-sized Minerva Teichert paintings to the Brigham Young University Museum of Art Friday, Dec. 7. A ceremony to accept these works will take place in the museum at 11:15 a.m.

Admission is free, and the public is welcome to attend.

This will be the third largest gift of art in the MOA’s history. The highly valued donated works depict Native Americans, cowboys and pioneers and are part of the MOA’s Southwest art exhibition, People in a Hard Land: Iconic Images of Life in the Southwest. BYU began collecting Teichert works in the 1930s.
