Artist Brother Mickey McGrath's Madonnas of Color paintings are now on display in the library's entrance area for a limited time.

Brother Mickey is known for a bright, inclusive and energetic palette that seems to lift the works off the canvas. His celebrations of Mary as the beloved Madonna of Color exemplify that approach. Vibrant hues run in patchwork-quilt fashion throughout the paintings. Brother Mickey hopes to help faithful see the importance of the black Madonna and the peace she can bring to today's racially divided world.
