Mother Theodore dioramas: before and after

These 12 dioramas, located in Providence Spirituality and Conference Center, will take you on a journey with Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, foundress of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Ind. Her journey begins in France, and ends with the laying of the foundation for the Church of the Immaculate Conception that stands today. The dioramas were originally located in Foley Hall and moved to a temporary location in Providence Hall before Foley was razed. In 1990 they were moved to the newly built Providence Spirituality and Conference Center.

The first diorama was created by Henri Marchand of the Marchand Diorama Corporation. The project was completed by artist Gregory Kamka before 1940. The dioramas were recently refurbished in the summer of 2014 by Patricia Griffin. The pictures below are before and after shots of the refurbishments.
