Life of the Spirit, Life of the Mind: Rockefeller Memorial Chapel at 75

Life of the Spirit, Life of the Mind

Exhibition curated by Sara Ritchie, Graduate Student in the Department of History.

"As the spirit of religion should penetrate and control the University, so that building which represents religion ought to be the central and dominant feature of the University group." This bold mission is etched in stone at the entrance of Rockefeller Memorial Chapel. Drawing on photographs and documents from the University Archives, this exhibition explores how the planners of Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, Chapel Deans, the student body, and the broader community have interpreted this mission to shape the architecture of the Chapel as well as the programs it supports.
