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 Archkeeper is the protector of something strange and precious.


"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.​"
