International Art Competition for youth gallery will open at LDS Church History Museum Nov. 16
Toni Oka, another youth intern, especially enjoyed the opportunity to view artwork for youths her age from across the world.
"I was shocked and impressed by the unique and incredible talents the youth all over the world have to offer," Oka said. "Young artists can produce works that are so extravagant and breathtaking. I hope when people come to see the exhibit, they feel the voice behind every work."
Although another youth contest hasn't been planned yet, both West and Wright expressed their hopes to see another one in the future.
"The hope would be that we see how this goes and get to do something similar again," Wright said. "It is something we definitely hope will build."
