Local artist Marie Wohadlo is leading a "FODOMOsaic" color-by-number mural project and you are invited to participate! Coloring sessions are Saturdays 12-2pm and are appropriate for tweens, teens and adults who can color in small squares with pencils. No formal art skills required, just a bit of patience and the desire to help create a drawing for permanent display at BVDL. Open sessions will be on Saturdays and will run 12:00PM to 2PM, until the piece is completed. Please call ahead to let us know that you are planning to attend-thank you!

What is the science behind our present understanding of it? Questions to be Addressed: 1. What are the Shroud of Turin, the head cloth (Sudarium), and the Veil of Veronica? 2.

Even more mysteries to attempt to understand…..
