It’s been one year since our beloved exhibition, The Barberini Tapestries: Woven Monuments of Baroque Rome opened at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art in Eugene, Oregon. The exhibition debuted at the Cathedral in March 2017 as a celebration of our Textile Conservation Lab’s work to conserve the tapestries, which were donated to the Cathedral before the cornerstone was laid over 125 years ago.
