I have always lovedEllsworth Kelly's work (see here!) but what if his work actually became a truly immersive experience? It turns out that Kelly recently gave the Blanton Museum of Art, in Austin, Texas, the plans for a chapel he designed in 1968. Although the chapel was commissioned by a private collector, the building was never built and the Blanton is now in talks to (hopefully!) conceive the structure itself, a la the Rothko Chapel in Houston. Like his work, the 2,175 foot stone space would be all about abstraction, color and light with geometric stained glass windows in three different chancels. Don't the mock ups above look glorious?Learn more about the project here.
