Mormon Arts Sunday for 2017 is June 11

Mormon Arts Sunday is the second Sunday in June, which means it’s June 11 this year. This is an occasion to celebrate the creativity of our fellow Saints (and others) as well as the important role the arts can have in bringing goodness, joy and wisdom into our lives.

We invite you to celebrate it as individuals, families, friends and wards. There are many ways to do this, here are some:

  1. Wear dark red/maroon to church on June 11 to show support for Mormon art and artists.
  2. If you will be giving a talk, teaching or selecting music for meetings on June 11, consider using work from/referencing Mormon poets, composers, fiction authors, playwrights, visual artists, etc.
  3. If appropriate, talk about creativity and art as part of a lesson, talk, family home evening (perhaps the Monday before) or conversation.
  4. Recommend works of art (especially those by Mormon artists) to friends and family members.
