Highland Park Ward: Lobby Mural Details

The two murals in the lobby were done by John B. Fairbanks, who also helped with painting in the Salt Lake Temple.

This one, above the main entrance, shows the pioneers arriving in the Salt Lake Valley:

And this one, above the entrances to the chapel and cultural hall, show the pioneers' first winter in the Salt Lake Valley.

These are beautiful paintings that were painted specifically for this building. Even more murals are found in the chapel, which we'll look at in my next post.
