The mural seen as you exit the Foyer was painted by Edward T. Grigware collaborated with Paul P. Foster titled "1850 Our Missionaries Dedicate the Islands." It was produced in 1960 and is 32 feet wide and almost 13 feet high. It depicts 10 elders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints arriving to the Islands in 1850. After climbing a hill they built an alter and dedicated the land for further missionary work. One of those missionaries, George Q. Cannon had recorded this experience in his journal.
