Downtown Salt Lake City shone with post Olympic spirit—spanking new buildings and well-kempt people with shiny name tags. Leaving the well tended streets behind, we entered the overly tended Museum of Church History and Art, where we were struck by the high production value of the exhibitions and how many people asked us if we needed additional information. The images and texts said it all - many fervent paintings of Jesus, lots of wagon trains through the wilderness and some very beautiful samplers. Also of note were interesting paintings from early 20th Century Latter-Day Saint artists and rugs and baskets from LDS Native Americans.
