The Chapel

The Town of Livingston has a long and storied history. Madison County courthouse was the last building standing on the old town square before relocating to Canton. The town is making a comeback thanks to developers, lead by David Landrum and Mike Bollenbacher. The group began rebuilding the town shortly after the land was purchased in 2006.

The chapel was built in 1907 in Camden, Mississippi. The structure served as chapel for St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Ridgeland. The school is undergoing a big expansion and decided to donate the structure to Livingston as a start for building their new chapel on the original Livingston town square.

The stained glass rose window design went through many iterations. Starting with the light house and a spring that feeds into a scenic lake. The idea of the light led to the central theme of a morning star. The star interpenetrates the earth while the living waters flow across the landscape. Amelia Key was the glass artist selecting the colors from Andy’s final rendering and Paul Farrar leaded the window.

Creation of the Holocaust Memorial

Original Art Work Holocaust Memorial 09 14 2015

 

The Holocaust Memorial tells the compelling story through images in glass art. When I was asked to prepare a design for the Holocaust Memorial I gladly accepted knowing the challenges ahead for me and my studio team.  All along the way members of the Beth Israel Congregation have been supportive by allowing us the freedom to express the ideas shown here.  The images ground us in the key points of the Holocaust narrative.  The abstract images allow each viewer the freedom to experience the Holocaust Memorial for themselves.READ MORE
