Art+Belief follows the journey of Trevor Southey, a gay Mormon artist from Africa who dreams of becoming a modern-day Michelangelo. He joins forces with a group of visionary young artists to found a movement that will change Mormon and Western art forever and challenge the religious faith of the artists along the way. At its core, Art+Belief is about the balancing act between individual vision and religious conformity and the unlikely possibilities of reconciliation. These artists show us that we each have a unique spiritual journey that can flourish regardless of our religious allegiances.
