Project Description

Dominican University of California has a rich history rooted in Catholicism. Although the university, originally known as Dominican College of San Rafael, disaffiliated from the Catholic Church in 1971 when it became co-educational, the heritage of the founding mothers has persisted throughout the years. Students and faculty are greeted with beautiful biblical depictions, often found in sculpture form, decorating some of the campus' high traffic buildings. These works of art are styled after the traditional Renaissance style of “Della Robbias.” These replicas have been a part of the campus community for decades.
