In the summer of 2011, Fred Somers received a commission from Carondelet Village a joint partnership of the Sisters of St. Joseph Carondelet and Presbyterian Homes of Minnesota to create a signature painting for their new retirement community, Carondelet Village.

How Fred was chosen to create the painting, how he used his artistic vision and powers to complete it, and the impact of its installation on the residents of the Village are essential elements of Genesis: The Art of Creation.
