The exhibition, will illustrate the history of the contributions of the Loretto Community through photographs, art, and memorabilia. The focus will be on five areas of their history and accomplishments: Beginnings in Kentucky and Santa Fe; The Schools; Global Loretto; Social Entrepreneurship: Peace and Justice; and Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Lives. Some of the signature pieces on view will include a replica of the very first high school diploma conferred in the Colorado territory in 1875 by St. Mary’s Academy to pupil Jesse Forshee, and images of Sante Fe’s world-renowned circular staircase built in 1880 by a carpenter whose identity remains among Santa Fe’s most oft-repeated mysteries.

The exhibit is made possible by the Denver Central Public Library, the May-Bonfils Stanton Foundation, and the Denver Foundation.
