When the institution closed in 1995, four hundred suitcases containing the belongings for former patients were discovered. Crispin’s photographs the suitcases and their contents serve as a vignette of the patients’ lives, portrayed with integrity and dignity.

Her repertoire includes the title role of Puccini’sMadama Butterfly, Violetta in La Traviatta, and Desdemona in Otello. Morehouse has served for over ten years as liturgical music director at churches throughout the region.
