Coinciding with the Easter season, the Church History Museum has opened a new exhibit featuring works of art from 29 LDS professional painters and sculptors focusing on Jesus Christ, His life and His gospel as contained in the Bible and the Book of Mormon.

"Seek My Face: Recent Artwork on Scriptural Themes" opened earlier this month and will close in June. President Thomas S. Monson on March 10 cut ceremonial ribbons at the museum for this exhibit and one on quilting.

Prominent artists such as Walter Rane, Brian Kershisnik, Jonathan Linton, Emily McPhie, James Christensen and Del Parson have their work featured in the new exhibit.

Among themes and subjects explored in the exhibit are Christ's influence in one's personal life, the parable of the 10 virgins, the martyrdom of Abinadi, the Second Coming, the divine condition, the theophany on Mount Sinai, Christ's healing hand, the childhood of Christ, the Savior's love for children, the visit of the resurrected Christ to the Nephites, the martyrdom of Christ, the Atonement and revelation about Christ.
