Church Murals by Lyn Martin

These church wall murals were created by Lyn Martin for the Grace Episcopal Church in Chattanooga, TN. The Grace priest contacted Lyn for the project in order to make the entrance more welcoming while taking something from Genesis (the Creation) and honoring older parishioners that worked to have the church building raised. Part of the artwork that Lyn created was inspired by a prayer during a service about “the planets in their courses and our island home, this planet earth.” Lyn painted the walls on site using Benjamin Moore wall paint and traditional acrylics for the details. A different task for an artist accustomed to using canvas board and a computer – especially painting most of the time on scaffolding!!

Old Testament Mural by Peter Grosshauser

We were approached by the Central Lutheran Church of Minneapolis, MN concerning a very exciting mural project. Peter Grosshauser had illustrated a beautiful bible story book for young children for Augsburg Fortress Publishers and the church wanted a mural created in the same art style that would be exciting for children to view. The theme would be the Old Testament. The wall space for the mural would be 56 feet in length by roughly 8 feet high! We explained to the client that it would be impossible to paint the mural on site due to the sheer size, amount of time to complete, travel restrictions, cost, etc. Peter came up with a great idea of illustrating the mural digitally in three sections after approval of sketches.

Peter then sent the digital files to a supplier in California who printed the art on flexible canvas. The “rolled-up” canvas panels were shipped to our client and they mounted all three on frames and secured them to the wall. They were delighted with the end result – a great solution for the project! Enclosed is a picture of the mounted murals that was sent to us – not a great picture but at least you get an idea of the sheer size!
