Exhibit on architecture on display at Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library

An exhibit on the life and career of Franciscan Brother Adrian Wewer, architect of the Archabbey Church at Saint Meinrad, is on display in the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library, St. Meinrad, until May 31.

With no formal training but by working with older brothers on construction projects in growing German-American Catholic communities, Brother Adrian designed more than 100 churches, college buildings, seminaries, schools, friaries, convents and hospitals during the second half of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. Some of these buildings have become historic landmarks throughout the United States.

The exhibition at Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library is in the lobby on the upper level of the library.

For library hours, call 812-357-6401 or 800-987-7311, or visit the Archabbey Library’s website: www.saintmeinrad.edu/library/hours.
