Details: Members of the media are invited to see a new, original painting by artist Greg Olsen which was commissioned for and will be donated to BYU. 

The 52" x 84" oil on canvas painting is titled Treasures of Knowledge and blends the secular and the sacred and the depth of learning that makes BYU unique. The piece features two young adults reading in a room surrounded by many tools of learning - from books and globes to artwork and scientific instruments - depicting a metaphor for a journey of discovery. 

The painting was commissioned by Leo and Annette Beus. They will also be available for interviews at 1 p.m.
