Sinsinawa Sisters to Relocate Exhibits
July 27, 2023
SINSINAWA, Wis.—The Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa are working with McCullough Creative to update and relocate the “Father Samuel Mazzuchelli, OP: Tracing a Journey” exhibit and the “Telling Our Story” heritage exhibit at Sinsinawa Mound. 
Together, the exhibits tell the story of the sisters’ service throughout the Midwest, including the Diocese of Rockford. Father Mazzuchelli, the order’s founder, is known for establishing over 35 parishes and building over 24 churches, including St. Michael Church in Galena. The Sinsinawa Dominican sisters have served for many years in the diocese as teachers and educational leaders. 
Both exhibits will remain open to the public and tour groups Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Sinsinawa Mound’s Heritage Center through July and August. The exhibits will be unavailable on weekends unless prior arrangements have been made by appointment. The final day to view the exhibits in their current environment will be Friday, Sept. 1, 2023. As the congregation updates and transitions the exhibits to the Stone building at Sinsinawa from Sept. 2, 2023, to the fall of 2024, they will be unavailable to the public. 
“We are excited to move the Mazzuchelli exhibit to the Stone building, which is the first building constructed by Father Samuel Mazzuchelli at Sinsinawa Mound,” said Sister Priscilla Wood, OP, Sinsinawa Promoter of Arts and Cultural Heritage. “We look forward to holding a grand reopening of both exhibits as one legacy exhibit in the fall of 2024.”
The Sinsinawa Book & Gift Gallery will remain open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will continue to sell products from Sinsinawa Bakery. Sinsinawa Farmers’ Markets at the Sinsinawa Mound Collaborative Farm will continue on Aug. 23 and Sept. 27.
