Artist Spotlight: Minerva Teichert

Recognized for her bold depictions of Mormon pioneers and an idyllic view of Western expansion, Minerva Teichert stands alongside early 20th century American modernists like Georgia O’Keeffe, Dorthea Tanning and Catherine C. Critcher.

The mythology of Teichert's pioneer ancestors and a tradition of prominent female characters permeates Minerva Teichert’s body of work, and reflects a pride in the self sufficient characters who carved her view of the West.

Long before Sheryl Sandberg, Minerva Teichert was championing strong women and leaning in.
