Thursday, September 18
Visual Arts Building lecture hall
This is the first in a series of lectures celebrating the centennial of liturgical artist, writer, and social activist Adé Bethune (1914-2002). Upton explores the life of Adé Bethune, with focus on her passion for social justice. This passion grew from Bethune's involvement with the Catholic Worker and characterized her whole life.
The lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
The lectures are presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Adé Bethune: The Power of One Person" at the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery through December 19, 2014. The exhibition draws from items in the University's Adé Bethune Collection and each speaker has used the Collection for their research.
Co–sponsors of the lecture series are: the Myser Initiative on Catholic Identity; Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, St. Paul Province; Alumnae Council Lifelong Learning Committee and Friends of the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery.
