The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints updated its plans for the renovation of the Manti Temple.
The Church initially planned to remove the murals from the temple after documenting it through photographs but recently an update was announced through their website.
According to the Church Newsroom, “the artwork in the Manti Temple includes murals painted by Minerva Teichert, which are valued not only for their beauty but also as a treasured remembrance of the faith, talent, and dedication of the artist.”
“The Teichert murals in the Manti Temple were originally painted on canvas, which was adhered to the plaster walls. The Church’s intent is to separate the canvas or portions of the canvas from the plaster and preserve the murals for future restoration and display in a public setting. We are seeking the advice of international experts in the field of art preservation during this process.”
