Huge response to "Sacred Gifts" exhibit prompts extended hours, free iPad app downloads

The immense success of the new exhibition “Sacred Gifts: The Religious Art of Carl Bloch, Heinrich Hofmann, and Frans Schwartz” at Brigham Young University’s Museum of Art has prompted museum directors to extend museum hours and provide a free “Sacred Gifts” iPad app download highlighting the exhibit.

  • Starting Jan. 1, the Museum of Art now serves the public from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday to accommodate high demand on evenings and weekends. Despite the extension, museum director encourage patrons to reserve their free ticket required for admittance as soon as possible. Tickets can be reserved in advance online at sacredgifts.byu.edu/tickets, and are released one month in advance.
  • Free downloads of the Museum’s interactive audiovisual iPad app designed exclusively for “Sacred Gifts” are now available at the iTunes Store, thanks to generous funding from donors William H. and Patricia W. Child. The app features uplifting educational resources including expert interviews, historical context, music, personal anecdotes and spiritual insights. Funding for the app’s development was also provided by the Marriner S. Eccles Foundation, the Allen Foundation and the BYU Laycock Center for Creative Collaboration in the Arts. Previously, the app had only been available for patrons on rental devices within the Museum for a $3 fee.
