“Camp of Israel! All Is Well”

Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of poems written by Latter-day Saints during the past 150 years tell the story of the pioneers of 1847. The poems that follow sketch their trek, tears, and triumph.

Accompanying the following poems on the epic nature of the Latter-day Saint pioneer journey is a sampling of artwork from the Fourth International Art Competition. Titled “150 Years of Pioneering,” the exhibition is on display until 1 September 1997 at the Museum of Church History and Art and celebrates pioneering past and present. Approximately 150 pieces were selected from nearly 600 entries by Latter-day Saint artists in 38 U.S. states and 31 countries worldwide. Twenty-two art pieces received Awards of Merit; 15 received Purchase Awards.
