The 1996 Utah Statehood Centennial Committee in cooperation with the St. George Arts Commission set out to initiate a collection of historical paintings by prestigious local artists and reproduce them along with written background vignettes as a permanent remembrance of the 1996 Utah Centennial. The current exhibit includes the original paintings from that project by Del Parson, Farrell Collett, Annette Everett, L’Deane Trueblood, Jon Bowcutt, Roland Lee, Wallace Brazzeal, Jodi McGregor, Max Bunnell, Gregory Abbott, Floyd Breinholt, and Gaell Lindstrom, along with photographic portraits of the artists by Gene Butera. There is a literary component to the project which includes enlightening essays by Karl Brooks, Douglas D. Alder, Loren Webb, Bart Anderson, Mary M. Phoenix, Janice F. DeMille, Lyman Hafen, Robert Slack, Wilma C. Beal, Sidney J. Atkin, J.L. Crawford and LuWayne Wood.
