    The late Fr. Michael Komechak, O.S.B., spent his life collecting and celebrating the works of others. Over time, he amassed one of the finest art and sculpture collections in the Midwest.

    The collection represents both fine and applied arts, and is engagingly diverse in its scope of subject and media. While a majority of the collection deals with religious themes, it also has a fair representation of contemporary art and work by well-known artists, but, consists mainly of works on paper and fine art prints. It also boasts a collection of ceramics, drawings, paintings, photography, textile, sculpture, mixed media, folk art and kitsch.
