Brown Chapel in Pasta

Here's historic Brown Chapel AME Church "in pasta." The art is another masterpiece of Selma's Vernon Spicer, who also produced the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
This weekend is the 15th annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee, and Brown Chapel, a 1908 Romanesque structure with twin towers, played a big part in the Voting Rights Movement of the 1960s.

Art in all its forms simply knocks my socks off. I'm sitting here right now with cold feet!

Wow, that is really amazing! In the thumbnail in the portal I thought there was a highly photoshopped/saturated image of a real church. Great image to share today!

How interesting! I had a friend in Las Vegas who used to make things (wreaths, pendants, etc.) using pasta. Hers was not anywhere as nice as this.
