Temple Murals Errata

In my post below, I wrongly stated that the Ghana temple was the first one to have murals. My bad. Los Angles (1956) was the last temple to have murals before the recent spat of temple building. The Winter Quarters Temple didn’t have murals, but it has very large, framed paintings in the ordinance rooms. This paved the way for the Columbia River Temple, which was the first recent temple to have true murals. Since then, murals have been included in the temples listed in this comment. In addition, there have been murals in the Monteray, Mexico temple, and the Nauvoo Temple (although these were commissioned after the temple was dedicated).

    OK, Nate, you’ve used up your quota of mistakes for the year.

    Maybe this could become the official apologies thread. Steve Evans could work on adding to his comment total and the rest of us could weigh in when necessary.

    I’ll get it started off: uh, I apologize for implying that Steve Evans is in any particular need to apologize more frequently than the rest of us and that he would go back on his clear promise never to apologize again.

    In your previous post you hold out hope that the new temple market for art may invigorate an LDS arts community. Do you think that the Church’s example will lead to an increase in private LDS patronage? If not, I wonder how much difference a top-heavy market can make.

    On the other hand, the things the Church is paying for are not so alien to the general art market that the artists would only have an outlet for their products within the Church.

    Adam, quit fishing for apologies! That lake is no longer stocked.

    Perhaps T&S should have an “Errata” column?

  5. Adam Greenwood on March 19, 2004 at 4:20 pm

    T&S is never wrong, and therefore needs no errata column. We posters only make mistakes in the comment section. Nate has posted this ostensible correction to a genuine T&S post merely to test your faith.

    I apologize for expressing myself so unclearly that you thought I wanted an apology from you and thereby forced you to resort to that inartful metaphor.

    I apologize for describing your gawky metaphor as inartful.

    I apologize for describing your metaphor as gawky.

    I apologize for writing TIC in a way that could be misinterpreted as offensive.

    I apologize for writing TIC instead of ‘tongue-in-cheek.’

    Adam, I’m used to these tests of faith by now.

    Inartful??? Fishing? Lake?? Come on, man! These are the best goods I’m giving you here. If you want the prime tropes, try commenting on the _other_ board!

    I wonder if the real Times and Seasons had an ‘Errata’ section? My guess is no.

  7. Adam Greenwood on March 19, 2004 at 4:35 pm

    What are you talking about? http://www.lds4bush.com doesn’t even have a comment section, let alone a section for tropes. Or when you referred to the _other_ blog did you mean Orson’s Telescope?

  8. Steve Evans on March 19, 2004 at 4:45 pm

    Ouch!! Oh Adam, when will you see the light that is the Reorganized Board?? I am just a traveler from an antique land (Canada), but heed my call!

    I’m guessing that the way we’ve parodied the links on our homepage has caused you a little concern. I assure you, Dear Reader, that such links are in jest.

    As for OT, Jeremy knows his site is the bee’s knees.

  9. Adam Greenwood on March 19, 2004 at 5:12 pm

    I’m still at a loss. Do you have some sort of blog called the Reorganized Board that parodies links or something? Maybe it’s more interesting than it sounds.

    I’m confused by the statement that Nauvoo’s mural were communissioned after the temple dedication. I worked at the open house and there were murals in the creation and garden rooms. They were pointed out in the tours. They were painted in Utah then flown in attached to the walls.

    While I realize this thread is somewhat old, I just wanted to make it clear that LDS4Bush/Mormons4Bush .com/.org do have a MT style blog up & running with comment section. The server appears to be under cyber-assault…or the provider is…or having othe tech difficulties this morning though.
