Painting "Dan Jones Awakens Wales" by LDS artist Clark Kelly Price depicts Captain Dan Jones preaching to ministers, coal miners and other residents of a south Wales village in the early 1850s.

Elder Jones was instrumental in the conversion and emigration of several thousands Welsh Latter-day Saints in the 1840s and 1850s.The painting was donated to the Church March 6 by the Sons of Utah Pioneers as part of a two-day Welsh Festival. It was accepted by President Gordon B. Hinckley, first counselor in the First Presidency, and will hang in the lobby of the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah.
