RELIGIOUS ARTS | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory Disney-Britton
A Texas museum is going to build Ellsworth Kelly's 1986 design for a spiritual chapel. The Blanton Museum of Art will name it the "Austin." Kelly's designs emphasize simplicity of form, and are most often associated with Color Field painting and the minimalist school. The simple stone building will have colored glass windows, marble panels, and a totemic rosewood sculpture as a symbolic altar. Because we need sacred spaces, Ellsworth Kelly's "Austin" (above) is my NEWS OF WEEK.
