The Tree of Life

Angela Johnson

Angela Johnson is a renowned sculptor best known for her stunning "Light of the World" sculpture exhibit in Ashton Gardens at Thanksgiving Point.

The project

The Tree of Life sculpture exhibit is a heroic scale depiction of Lehi’s vision with compelling portrayals of great souls from the Book of Mormon. Lehi, Sariah, Nephi and Laman bring the epic story of this ancient family to life. This presentation will eventually be a two story, massive, majestic experience where guests walk diverse paths among 200 dynamic figures expressing a vast spectrum of emotion, like actors on the stage of a stunning landscape. This is the sacred story of multitudes, choosing between the great and spacious building and the iron rod, walking their own journey towards the Tree of Life.

Watch as Angela Johnson creates Lehi's Dream of the Tree of Life for the Light of the World Center for the Arts!
