History of the Nauvoo Gallery 

This is a photo of the Temple House Building in Nauvoo Illinois where the LDS Art Gallery is located.

 

The Nauvoo Gallery is located in the old Temple House Building in the Downtown Historic District of Nauvoo, Illinois. Recognized in the National Registry of Historic Places, the Temple House is among the city's early historic landmarks.  The beginnings of the Temple House can be seen in this 1847 photo of the original Nauvoo Temple. (lower right) The building's name comes from its unique round-topped gothic windows, which were seen on the clock tower of the original Nauvoo Temple. These original windows are still in the Gallery today.  This is a photo of the original Nauvoo Temple. The LDS Art Gallery can be seen to the far right of the Photo.

The Nauvoo Temple Art Gallery is open year round in Nauvoo and hosts hundreds of thousands of guests each year.  The gallery carries a wide selection of art including LDS art, Inspirational art, and other great works of Mormon art.  The gallery also offers many non- LDS art works and meaningful faith art.  The Nauvoo Gallery has had the privilage of displaying many original works of art as well. We were proud to be included in the Smithsonian Institutions Journey Stories traveling museum exhibit in Nauvoo during the Fall of 2012.
