WHAT IS THE ARIEL BYBEE ENDOWMENT AT THE CENTER FOR LATTER-DAY SAINT ARTS?


The Ariel Bybee Endowment at the Center for Latter-day Saint Arts is an annual prize/commission for the creation of new art and scholarship by Latter-day Saints. The nine disciplines represented by the Endowment correspond to career highlights and passions of Ariel Bybee and are in honor of her. Each year, The Ariel Bybee Endowment at the Center for Latter-day Saint Arts will announce a call for submissions open to LDS artists and scholars in one of these nine, rotating categories: opera, dance, scholarship, art songs, youth education, hymns, visual arts, collaborative arts, and choral music. After adjudication, selected artists or scholars will receive funding from the Endowment in order to create new works.


WHY?


The Endowment aspires to the creation of works of the highest artistic quality. It fills a void in LDS culture to fund fine art works in the fields of visual art, scholarship, and music. It is our expectation that works emerging with The Ariel Bybee Endowment at the Center for Latter-day Saint Arts imprimatur be hallmarks of innovation, critical importance, and creative significance and will come from an inclusive group of voices from around the world.


WHERE?


The Endowment will be housed at the Center for Latter-day Saint Arts and will accomplish two vital purposes: to advocate for creative artists who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by funding new works, and to explore the cultural legacy of artistic pioneers like the beloved Ariel Bybee. 

The Endowment is being established in perpetuity, meaning each year a new artist will  create work in one of nine discipline areas representative of Ariel's professional achievements and passions.
