Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America, an exhibit tracing the history of the small group of innovative women who helped shape the nation’s social and cultural landscape, opens today at the Chalon campus of Mount St. Mary’s College. The exhibit will run through August 14. Admission is free with a $5 charge for parking.
At a time when women couldn’t vote and had few rights, the sisters opened hospitals, taught schools, established colleges and housed orphans at dramatic moments in U. S. history, including the Gold Rush, the Civil War, the San Francisco earthquake, floods, epidemics and other natural disasters.
The Chalon campus, which opened in 1931, is located in Brentwood above the Getty Museum and offers spectacular views of the Los Angeles basin.
