Southwest School of Art

History of the Ursuline Convent and Academy

The story told by wall text and archival objects in the history museum is transformed into digital form for children and young teens to access while visiting. Based on the masterful book, The School by the River (Maria Watson Pfeiffer, Maverick Press, 2001), which is filled with images, text, original documents and stories about the site’s history, this presentation provides a new entry point to the material that can be accessed either while on a tour of the galleries, or from a remote location via the web.
