"STAINED GLASS WINDOW"
"My interest in art must have started with my Catholic upbringing. Art was everywhere: churches with its paintings, sculptures, stained glass, textiles, and fine metalwork." ~ Cheech Marin
I love admiring and photographing stained glass windows. Shown here is one of the stained glass windows of Epiphany Episcopal Church that sits at the end of "Main Street" in Small Town USA at the museum. The church serves as a popular wedding chapel in Jackson. I took a peak inside and snapped this photo. On the day of our visit, my guest and I practically had the place all to ourselves. It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect!
"The importance of religion in the everyday lives of Mississippians cannot be underestimated. It has influenced all segments of our culture, from literature to politics, and has been a continuing source of community and individual strength. The story of the Epiphany Episcopal Church is typical in its reflection of the steadfastness of religious needs and beliefs through several generations and diverse circumstances. The last services conducted at the church were in 1982. Rev. Duncan M. Gray Jr., the Episcopal Bishop of the state, agreed to donate the church to the museum in 1984. The structure's materials were photographed, drawn, and carefully coded assuring that a proper restoration could be performed. The church was disassembled and moved during July and August 1984. Reconstruction was completed in February 1985."
