"As it is in Heaven: A History of the Church in East Baltimore"

Bond Street at Ashland Avenue, Baltimore, MD

Historic East Baltimore Community Association/Baltimore Mural Program

 

This piece is created in two sections, each a block long,  on the back of Church Square Shopping Center.  Situated between three prominant local churches, it was commissioned to depict the influence that religious institutions have had in that area.

 

The design incorporates imagery based on the architectural, educational and social contributions of the Jewish, German, Russian, African-American, Catholic and Prostestant communities that have made their homes in East Baltimore.

 

Prominent images celebrate the first public school for Blacks started by white Methodists, the city's first clock tower, abolitionist stops along the underground railroad, and the Catholic church's controversy and division over instrumental music in worship.
