St. Andrew’s Collegiate Chapel, an early 20th century church in Philadelphia, is the site of an installation using strings to create geometric art. The Chapel was originally used to educate Episcopal priests from Philadelphia Divinity School, but became vacant after it was sold as part of a larger parcel to the University of Pennsylvania.
Artist Aaron Asis titled the project “Ci-Lines”, and spoke to Hidden City Philadelphia about collaborating with fifth grade students and his hopes that the project would spark conservation efforts for the neighborhood landmark.
You can read the whole interview on Hidden City, which has a photo gallery of the exhibit.
What do you think when you see the installation? Are there other public art projects you want to see in churches?
