For the 11th International Art Competition, artists were asked to consider the theme—Meditations on Belief—and Psalm 77:11–12: “I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.” Artists from around the world responded to this theme in distinct, thoughtful, and personal ways, often bearing profound testimony through their work and accompanying artist statements. In the 151 works selected for this exhibit, a number of repeating ideas emerged: nature as a site of devotion for God and His creation; a sense of awe and humility communicated and captured in the universe and in the stars; devoted women seeking revelation, expressing gratitude, or manifesting faith; Jesus Christ—His miracles, His grace, His divinity; stories from the scriptures; explorations of family and ancestors; adversity, suffering, healing, and hope; and the temple as a place of holiness and refuge. While in no way comprehensive, this list of repeating ideas seems to summarize what it means to truly believe.
