Interior To Display Instrumental Artwork

Works by Thomas Moran to return to Interior Museum in September

The Interior Department announced on Monday that two paintings created by Thomas Moran would be returning to public display later this year in the Interior Museum in Washington D.C. It has been over 20 years since the pieces were on display. Thomas Moran’s works were highly instrumental in the conservation efforts of the nation’s parks by increasing public knowledge about the vast beauty of the country.

Excited for the return of the paintings, Secretary Bernhardt said, “Moran’s magnificent 19th-century works illustrate the breathtaking natural beauty of the American West, serving as a reminder of the Department of the Interior’s humbling responsibility to preserve these vistas for the American people. We are eager to welcome these paintings back to Interior headquarters, where all who visit the newly-expanded Interior Museum can appreciate firsthand works so central to our Department’s mission and identity.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would help the Interior Department increase the love of God’s creation in the hearts of Americans.
  • For Secretary Bernhardt to be used by God to better teach Americans about national parks.
  • That the vast resources of the U.S. will be available for generations to come.
