`Greatest exposure' ever is spotlighted in exhibit

A new exhibit in the lobby of the Church Office Building in Salt Lake City spotlights the greatest season of mass media exposure for the Church in its 167-year history.

Highlighting worldwide news coverage of this year's Pioneer Sesquicentennial, the exhibit opened Oct. 1 and will continue through the end of the month. It consists of display panels arrayed with examples of print media stories from around the world in LDS and non-LDS publications. It is enhanced with a monitor continuously showing video news clips from such programs as the "World Evening News with Peter Jennings," "CBS This Morning," and others from various countries of the world.Presented by the Church Public Affairs Department and the Church Pioneer Sesquicentennial Committee, the display includes examples of the Sesquicentennial Spectacular, Worldwide Heritage Service Day and the Mormon Trail Wagon Train. It also includes a hands-on sampler of the Church's own multi-media CD ROM pertaining to the sesquicentennial.
