In the summer of 2011, Fred Somers received a commission from the Sisters of St. Joseph Carondolet in St. Paul to create a signature painting for their new retirement community, Carondolet 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.
The second screening will take place at 7pm on April 11, 2013 at St.Olaf College's Viking Theater. See the Screenings page for directions and details.
A number of people have participated in the making of the documentary. Check out Participants for clips, pictures and biographical information.
