Adé Bethune: The Power of One Person

September 8 - December 19, 2014

An exhibition featuring materials from the Adé Bethune Collection began this week at the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery. The show, entitled Adé Bethune: The Power of One Person, commemorates the centennial of artist, writer, and activist Adé Bethune (1914-2002).

The opening reception is Saturday, September 13, 6-8 p.m.

In the 1930s, Bethune gained recognition as an illustrator for The Catholic Worker newspaper. Although she is principally remembered for her involvement with the Catholic Worker, Bethune made significant contributions in other areas, most notably in her role as a liturgical designer and consultant, graphic designer, and community activist.

The exhibit includes a selection of artworks and other materials, which highlight Bethune’s varied interests as an artist and social activist. The show runs from September 8 - December 19, with an opening reception on Saturday, September 13, 6:00 - 8:00 P.M.

University Archivist Deborah Kloiber arranges objects for
display in the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery.
