The ARCH-HIVE is a collective art network. We are artists, musicians, writers, and thinkers exploring the unique perspectives & peculiarities of Utah, Mormonism, and the American West through the lenses of folk, pop, esoteric, and psychedelic art.


The ARCH-HIVE is inspired in part by the mission of the Art and Belief Movement from the 1960s, but with a modern focus. It hopes to create a space for modern Mormon and Mormon-adjacent artists, writers, and thinkers who don’t feel at home in either orthodoxy or secularism.

"The HIVE in all of it forms is a reflection of a zeitgeist. Spirit and question is their brush of choice. Often moving in broad strokes, the collective is painting a mural of culture. The picture coming into focus with each venture is one of a growing community and of faith. It is a narrative healthy enough for not just question and controversy, but a story of resolve and simplicity, which is illustrated in the ease of the work.​"
