Washington DC Visitors Center hosts international families exhibit

A colorful exhibit highlighting Latter-day Saint families from around the world recently opened at the Washington D.C. Temple Visitors Center. "Eternal Families Worldwide" will remain through April 11. It is open during regular visitors center hours, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.

Native clothing, decorative artifacts, housewares, musical instruments and Church-related items have been loaned by members of the Church from many countries who live in the area around Washington, D.C.

"This exhibit represents the international character of the Church," said visitors center cultural arts committee member Kathleen Moorehead, who organized the show with Julia Marcois. "It reinforces the message that the gospel is for all of God's children, and that our beliefs are consistent throughout the world."

Asia, Africa, Mexico, Central and South America, Europe, and the islands of the sea are represented in the exhibit. Background music consists of Primary songs by children in many languages.
