Paul Herrera and Amy S Nielsen of The Art Legacy League had the opportunity to refurbish this beautiful slate that hangs in the Morton Arboretum, Chicago IL. Fr. E. M. Catich designed it in 1968, and Bob O'Hare inscribed the stone. When it was being cleaned, the "E Catich 68" signature was found on the chamfered edge of the stone. What a privilege and what a beautiful lasting piece of art.
