Artist James C. Christensen to speak at Church History Museum June 17
SALT LAKE CITY — Artist James C. Christensen will be sharing his experiences and presenting on storytelling through his paintings at the Evenings at the Museum event June 17.
"Whimsy and the Spirit: A Lecture by Artist James C. Christensen" will be at 7 p.m. in the Church History Museum Auditorium.
James Christensen is a well-known contemporary Latter-day Saint artist. He is often called a fantasy artist because his most popular works include unique people, places, and things that exist somewhere between adult dreams and childhood memories. Christensen has won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. His first book, "A Journey of the Imagination: The Art of James Christensen," was published to great acclaim in 1994. More than a half-dozen subsequent publications have been very popular and successful. He has received commissions from both Time Life Books and Omni to create illustrations for their publications. His work has appeared in the prestigious American Illustration Annual and Japan's Outstanding American Illustrators.
The lecture is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. For reservations, please call the Church History Museum at 801-240-4615, weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Church History Museum is located at 45 North W. Temple in Salt Lake City.
