Spectral Locus

The corner of Richmond and West Ferry is a sight to behold. A massive work of art by Amanda Browder is currently underway, scheduled for completion tomorrow. This particular art installation, titled Spectral Locus, see a good portion of the church’s exterior being covered by colorful discarded fabric, donated by the community.

Not only did over 300 volunteers dedicate countless hours stitching the installation, thousands of pounds of fabric were donated to make all of Browder’s works possible. 

This signifies an exciting time for the church as the development team continues to pursue the transformation into a multipurpose arts campus.

This public art installation was made possible thanks to the Albright Knox and its newfound Public Art Initiative (see the works here). This particular work symbolizes the rebirth of the church into a visual and performing arts center (see here).
