The latest of these was the evening of March 4. Museum visitors saw five artists at work and had the opportunity to ask them questions and learn more about them. The artists were Richard Passey, leather tooler; Mark Buehner, book illustrator; Blair Buswell, sculptor; Suzanne Lancaster, gourd painter; and Lee Bennion, painter. Highlighted on these pages are these artists and some of their comments at the museum.
Ideal though they are as locales for viewing works of art, museums don't very often show an artist in the act of creating the piece. The Church History Museum in downtown Salt Lake City has sought to provide that opportunity for visitors with its periodic "Artists at Work" events, part of its "Evenings at the Museum" series.
