Today it is a working museum and gallery, which also displays locally made pottery and other craft items."Suffer, the Little Children," wall-sized fresco by Benjamin F. Long IV, located on the campus in the Sloop Chapel. The fresco tells the story of how Jesus received the children as the crowds surrounded him.
