Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception

Wichita, KS

EverGreene was selected to renew the interior of the magnificent 1912 Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception by Emmanuel Masqueray for its centennial. An extensive Historic Investigation and conceptual design phase led to the creation of a decorative scheme inspired by historic photographs.

The design committee also elected to conceive and create new murals that reflect the values and mission of the parish. In the side Niches, saints and everyday people carry their gifts toward the altar. From the dome, God the Father benevolently welcomes. Pendentive murals of the evangelists, a Holy Spirit in the Baptistery and an Easter sky mural were also designed, created, and installed by EverGreene.

Plasterwork included mirroring the design of the west transept’s marble articulation and painting it to match the original.
