Chapel Mural

"Crowning of Mary: Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the Society of Jesus"

The mural that graces the western wall above the main altar of Madonna della Strada Chapel was painted by Melville Steinfels (1910-1997) and completed by the artist in 1947. During the chapel's renovation of 2006-2007, Turkish-born artist Meltem Aktas added four angels to adorn Steinfels' original mural.
