SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — For the first time, artwork from the Museum of Church History and Art is now available online. In the past, people wishing to purchase prints of art owned by the Museum needed to go into the Museum Store in Salt Lake City or place an order over the phone. Now, a new partnership between the Museum and LDS Church Distribution Services makes it possible for anyone in the United States and Canada to view prints available for purchase and order over the Internet on www.ldscatalog.com.

The project includes approximately 70 paintings by well-known artists such as Minerva Teichert, John Hafen, and Walter Rane. These paintings are replicated using the giclée printing process, which uses detailed digital scans, pigmented archival ink, precision color control, and technically advanced ink-jet printing to create reproductions. In normal display conditions, giclée prints are expected to last more than 50 years without fading.

Most of the prints will be available in three different sizes, with prices ranging from $40 to $345. These fine art prints are available online only at www.ldscatalog.com and can be shipped to individual customers in the U.S. and Canada. For more information, call the Distribution Center at 1/800/537-5971 or 801/240-3800.

Currently, the Museum art available through the Web site can be purchased unframed only. To purchase a framed print, contact the Museum Store directly at 801/240-3592.
