After the lecture, Crossings and Dwellings co-curators Ellen Skerrett and Dr. Rima Lunin Schultz led a viewing of the BVM portion of the exhibit, which contained photos and artifacts from the rich history of the congregation. Featured in the exhibit was a documentary film about Sr. Mary Justitia Coffey, BVM, the first president of Mundelein College, as well as artifacts from some of the college's more accomplished students, including an Oscar won by Mercedes McCambridge (Class of 1937) for her role in the 1949 film All the King's Men.

The Crossings and Dwellings exhibit at LUMA ends on October 19, 2014. It is well worth a visit for anyone interested in the history of Jesuits and women religious in America.
