SALT LAKE CITY – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the partnership between the church and the Boy Scouts of America with two new exhibitions opening later this month at the Church History Museum.
The Church HIstory Museum and the National Scouting Museum in Irving, Texas have collaborated to bring 23 works of art by Norman Rockwell, titled “American Originals: Norman Rockwell and Scouting.
The second exhibition, “A Good Turn Daily: 100 Years of Scouting and the Aaronic Priesthood,” is designed for the church’s scouting-age boys. It will examine the relationship between scouting and the Aaronic Priesthood through interactive displays and historical memorabilia, including the original charter signed in 1913.
Both exhibitions open July 19 and run through Dec. 31 at the Church History Museum, 45 N. West Temple in Salt Lake City.
